The Zoo and Trial by Jury

The Zoo
Music by Arthur Sullivan
Libretto by B. C. Stephenson

The story of the Zoo concerns two pairs of lovers. First, a nobleman, who goes to the zoo to woo the girl who sells snacks there. He tries to impress her by buying and eating all of the food. The other couple is a young chemist who believes that he has poisoned his beloved by mixing up her father's prescription with peppermint that he had meant for her. The Zoo lives up to the description as a Musical Folly.

Trial by Jury
Music by Arthur Sullivan
Lyrics by W.S. Gilbert
The story of Trial by Jury concerns a "breach of promise of marriage" lawsuit in which the judge and legal system are the objects of light hearted satire. This narrative technique blunts some of the pointed barbs aimed at hypocrisy, especially of those in authority, and the sometimes base motives of supposedly respectable people and institutions.
