1993: Utopia (limited)

First produced on October 7, 1893, Utopia (Limited) was just a modest success. It ran for 245 performances on the D‘Oyly Carte stage but then disappeared until 1975, when it was briefly revived and recorded. The GSOC made some cuts and presented its version once in 1993, on the opera‘s centennial anniversary, under the directorial banner of David Currie and with Michael Swisher as King Paramount the First. Other company regulars, Ruth Lidecka and Michael Kotze, had the principal roles of Lady Sophy and Mr. Goldbury.
