So striking was the orchestral sound produced by Sargent that the press thought he had retouched the scores, and Carte had the pleasant duty of correcting their error. In a letter to The Times , he noted that "the details of the orchestration sounded so fresh that some of the critics thought them actually new There were additional recordings, in high fidelity, for Decca Records , in the late s and early s and stereo recordings in the late s and early s, all supervised after Rupert's death by his daughter, Bridget D'Oyly Carte.
On 3 June the Savoy closed, and it was completely rebuilt to designs by Frank A.

Henry Lytton retired in after a quarter century as the principal comedian, and the company made a highly successful eight-month North American tour with its new principal comedian, Martyn Green.
In many company members participated in the Technicolor film of The Mikado produced and conducted by Geoffrey Toye. On 3 September , at the outbreak of World War II, the British government ordered the immediate and indefinite closure of all theatres. Carte cancelled the autumn tour and disbanded the company. Some performers, including Martyn Green, were already committed elsewhere, and Grahame Clifford was engaged to play his roles.
The company resumed touring, in Edinburgh, on Christmas Day Pinafore , Princess Ida and Ruddigore. The old productions of Pinafore and Cox and Box were recreated shortly after the war, and Ruddigore received a new production, planned by Carte but not seen until after his death. The other two operas took longer to rejoin the company's repertory. A return to the U. Rupert died in , leaving a strong company to his daughter Bridget.
Bridget and Lloyd also took steps to keep the productions fresh, engaging designers to redesign the costumes and scenery. Peter Goffin, who had redesigned Yeomen and Ruddigore for the company, created new settings and costumes for Bridget for half a dozen more productions: The Mikado ; settings only, most of the celebrated Ricketts costumes being retained , Patience , The Gondoliers , Trial by Jury , H.
Pinafore ; ladies' costumes and Iolanthe A new production of Princess Ida in was designed by James Wade. In the company gave a seven-month tour to the U. With the approaching end of the D'Oyly Carte monopoly on Gilbert and Sullivan performances, when the copyright on Gilbert's words expired in Sullivan's music had already come out of copyright at the end of , Bridget D'Oyly Carte contributed the company and all its assets to an independent charitable trust.
She endowed the trust with the company's scenery, costumes, band parts and other assets, together with a cash endowment, and supervised the production of operas on behalf of the trust until economic necessity forced the closure of the company in It made a cinema film of The Mikado in , and recorded for television broadcast its productions of Patience and H.
In March and April , after the regular London season at Sadler's Wells, the company moved to the Savoy Theatre for a fortnight's centennial performances, beginning on 25 March, the th anniversary of the first performance of Trial by Jury. All thirteen surviving Gilbert and Sullivan operas were performed in chronological order.
Royston Nash , who was at the company's musical helm from to , conducted most of the performances, with Isidore Godfrey Pinafore and Sir Charles Mackerras Pirates and Mikado as guest conductors. Princes Philip and Andrew saw The Gondoliers. Throughout the 20th century, until , the company toured, on average, for 35 weeks per year in addition to its week London seasons , fostering a "strong family atmosphere, reinforced by the number of marriages in the company and the fact that so many people stayed with it for so long.
She explained, "people didn't have flats or houses The company visited Denmark in , Rome in , and gave its last American tours in and Its last tour, in Australasia , conducted by the company's new musical director, Fraser Goulding, was a success in In the producer George Walker proposed to film the company performing all of the Gilbert and Sullivan operas but backed out. A three-LP recording of this performance was released, which included songs from all of the Gilbert and Sullivan operas.
Richard Condon was appointed the revived company's first general manager, and Bramwell Tovey was its first musical director. Pinafore were nominated for Olivier Awards. Unlike the original company, which had regularly performed up to a dozen operas each year, 48 weeks a year, the new company generally presented only one or two operas in shorter seasons. The Observer thought the productions "miles superior to the later work of the old D'Oyly Carte; better designed, better lit The Pirates , however, marked a break with traditional presentations, with the setting a giant toy-box and a collapsible toy boat.
It "was unveiled to storms of outraged booing". The Times wrote, "The satiric point disappears in meretricious ado and humourless humour". Another initiative was to stage a foreign operetta for the first time since Richard D'Oyly Carte's day, in what would be D'Oyly Carte's first co-production.
The work chosen was Orpheus in the Underworld , which Opera North presented in and D'Oyly Carte toured in as part of its week tour celebrating the th anniversary of Sullivan's birth. Unlike its predecessor, the new company was not a permanent ensemble with a recognisable style. Budgetary constraints have forced the company to re-write the score for a band of nine instrumentalists.
They play well enough, but every one of Sullivan's parodies loses its clout. Despite the lean forces, the company received generally favourable reviews over the next five years under the management of Ian Martin. After fifteen years, with no Arts Council funding forthcoming, the company suspended productions in May The company was dormant from to , but it successfully claimed reimbursement of VAT paid during the s, which helped it return to production. The company had opened the Grand in with a performance of Utopia, Limited and had returned there throughout the theatre's year history.
Gilbert and Sullivan aficionados frequently use the names of the principal comedians of the D'Oyly Carte Opera Company to refer to time periods of the company's history. Before Grossmith left the company in , he created the principal comic roles in nine of the operas, and so the principal comedian parts in the operas are often referred to as the "Grossmith" roles.
In the original New York City productions and British touring productions, the soprano Geraldine Ulmar , baritone Signor Brocolini , comic George Thorne and bass-baritone Fred Billington became particularly well known. After Grossmith left the company, the most notable players of his roles during the rest of Gilbert's lifetime were Walter Passmore principal comedian from to and Charles H.
Workman , who played the roles on tour with the company from and took over as principal comedian at the Savoy between and John , tenor Courtice Pounds and his sister, mezzo-soprano Louie Pounds.
