G&S Opera Victoria has lately been presenting operas on their centenary year. Having previously put on The Emerald Isle and Merrie England, Tom Jones seems like a natural choice. (It is here I should lament that they missed Princess of Kensington, and it is hoped that they will present us with Fallen Fairies.) A recording was taken and is available through their shop. I do not own a copy but if someone will provide a review, I will include it here.
