Savoy Opera

The Savoy Operas are a series of operettas written by Gilbert and Sullivan. Strictly speaking, the term refers only to those whose first run or part thereof occurred at the Savoy Theatre in London (those from Patience onwards); in practice, the term is used more generally to refer to all the operas written by this collaboration and produced by Richard D'Oyly Carte.
