German’s sparkling comic opera overflows with memorable, tuneful songs like The Yeomen of England and Here’s a to-do to die to-day, and the cast respond to them with great exhilaration and enjoyment, singing Basil Hood’s witty and often tongue-tripping words with dexterity and aplomb. This classic 1960 production, brilliantly refurbished, is an irresistible bargain. Ian Lace
