(Based on the Music of Arthur Sullivan and arranged by Charles Mackerras.)

After the copyright on Arthur Sullivan's music expired in 1950, the English opera company Sadler's Wells created a ballet called Pineapple Poll, based on Gilbert's Bab Ballad, "The Bumboat Woman’s Story." It was set exclusively to music by Sullivan, arranged by Charles Mackerras. Mackerras had played oboe in a Sydney theater that produced all but two of the Gilbert & Sullivan operas. He wove the tunes from these works together brilliantly, and listeners may well recognize melodies from Mikado, Iolanthe, Princess Ida, Patience, Ruddigore, Gondoliers and other works in these selections. --James Huff 17:54, March 27, 2007 (EDT) (from the program notes of The Claremont Winds, submitted with permission)
