Yes...correct. She is an operetta now, but prior to this (before her weight loss campaign) she was a standard "Opera"

They actually played music from Pirates of Penzance this morning! Orchestral, to be sure, but definitely G&S. Does Nicole Marie know about this?

Well, it was Sullivan, at least. I see they don't list Gilbert in the 'music log' entry. I take it he's the wordsmith of the duo, and Sullivan is the musician?

Yes...the first time I heard it was on 7/31/06 at 5:48PM...we figured that Nicole had gone home for the day and someone slipped it in the mix (Scott?). We figured that we'd just keep quiet about it so she didn't notice... :lol:

Sullivan was the composer, also a gret cellist, and wrote a nice concerto or two for cello.

and if the movies are to be believed (gospel truth they are, no?), often composing while growling about Gilbert.

I believe G complained just as much about S.
