Government corruption, press intrusion, wholesale privatisation, royal scandals, rampant personal debt… Join us this autumn in Utopia (Limited)! Following the laid-back inhabitants of a South Sea idyll as they willingly embrace British customs and institutions, Utopia (Limited) was the 13th collaboration of comic opera maestros Gilbert and Sullivan.
