This project has been formed to help improve the Wikipedia articles related to Gilbert and Sullivan and to add new articles within its "Scope" described below. For future reference, you can easily reach this page via the shortcut WP:G&S.

To find out what articles we collaborate on, see Scope and Articles below. See our discussion page here to see our past discussions and to ask questions or discuss project work. For Article Assessments, visit our assessment department.

If you would like to help, consider looking at the To do lists, including articles for expansion and new article opportunities below. Feel free to add additional tasks or articles to these lists. If you would like to join us, please add your name to the list of participants.

Articles[edit]

Main articles[edit]

Other articles[edit]

At this time, there are articles for:

  • Savoy Opera – this article discusses what works can be considered "Savoy Operas", and gives information about the works presented at the Savoy Theatre
  • Every opera that Arthur Sullivan wrote with other collaborators and most of his major choral works. See: Operas by Arthur Sullivan.
  • The curtain raisers that played together with the Gilbert and Sullivan operas at the Savoy Theatre, as well as the other works that played at the Savoy Theatre under the management of Richard D'Oyly Carte or Helen Carte. See Savoy Opera.
  • The London theatres historically associated with Gilbert and Sullivan. See the main Gilbert and Sullivan category.

Cleanup listing subscription[edit]

New article opportunities[edit]

Feel free to add an article on any relevant topic, as long as it is encyclopedic, adopts a neutral point of view, and is verifiable. Normally the best way to ensure verifiability and neutrality is to cite sources, rather than relying on what you merely believe to be true. See also WP:MUS, WP:ENT, WP:BIO and WP:ORG.

Below are suggestions for new articles that are needed to round out the G&S coverage on Wikipedia.

Works[edit]

Opera companies[edit]

People[edit]

  • We have articles on most of the key G&S performers (see our expansion/development opportunities above), but there are still some conductors, directors and choreographers of the D'Oyly Carte opera company, and other people associated with G&S who could be added.

Miscellaneous[edit]

  • We need articles describing G&S scholarship today and the major G&S museum collections and other principal G&S sources available for G&S enthusiasts.

Article alerts[edit]

No Article alerts at this time.

General strategy and discussion forums[edit]

Infoboxes in articles[edit]

Following similar advice at our parent project, Project Opera, the members of the G&S project discourage using infoboxes at the top of biography and opera articles within the scope of this Project, as they generally contain only repetitive information and interfere with the placement of images at the beginning of articles.

An extensive relevant discussion from 2011 is at Talk:Richard D'Oyly Carte. -- Ssilvers (talk) 13:44, 5 October 2011 (UTC)

Lists[edit]

"Lists" are unnecessary for items that are already included in "categories".

We already have:

Possible lists for creation:

  • a Complete list of D'Oyly Carte-produced works (Savoy Opera only includes pieces that played at the Savoy. Some pieces were played only on tour.) See here.
  • a list of museums, libraries and other institutions or collections where there is a substantial collection of unique or very rare Gilbert and/or Sullivan materials.
