The Beauty Stone

by: Arthur Wing Pinero

Not your usual Pinero play. Gilbert and Sullivan had stopped collaborating, and so Pinero - at the height of his very successful career - and a lyricist named Comyns Carr were teamed up with Sullivan to prepare this "romantic musical drama in three acts". It is sorta the Faust story with the Devil, a magic stone that enhances the appearance of its wearer, and all the peoples of a medieval village and castle. Sorry to say, we are not including Sullivan's music in this release.
