Even if you're a fan of Gilbert and Sullivan musicals, you haven't heard much music from Thespis, or, The Gods Grow Old. That's because all but two pieces of the opera's original score were lost.
Now Constantine Grame, the musical director of the local Gilbert and Sullivan Players, has composed new music in Sullivan's style to round out the company's production of Thespis this weekend at the Tarpon Springs Performing Arts Center, inside City Hall at 324 E Pine St. Before the show, University of Kansas professor Stephen Teller will briefly discuss Gilbert's writings and the lost score for Thespis. Show times are 8 p.m today, 2 p.m and 8 p.m Saturday, and 2 p.m. Sunday. Reserved seating is $20 ($18 for members and students). Call (727) 942-5605 or order online at www.tarponarts.org.
