Gilbert & Sullivan’s first real hit, this comic one-act opera concerns a ludicrous “breach of promise” lawsuit in which the judge and the legal system are the subjects of high-spirited satire. The glamorous Angelina brings a court case against her fiancé Edwin, who has jilted her after coming to the ghastly realization that she bores him intensely. Unfortunately for Edwin, once they’ve seen Angelina, all of the members of the jury and even the judge are entirely prejudiced and take her side. Will Edwin pay for his arrogance? And will Angelina ever achieve her dream of becoming a blushing bride?
