Gilbert and Sullivan's beloved opera received a royal Hollywood treatment with this 1939 Technicolor adaptation, the first complete work by the famed duo to be adapted for the screen. The result is a lavish retelling of the British political satire set in exotic Japan, featuring performances by the D'Oyly Carte Opera Company. Songs include fan-favorites "A Wandering Minstrel I," "Three Little Maids from School Are We" and more. 1 ½ hrs, 1 DVD or 1 Blu-ray disc.
