A satirical take on the love and rivalries at the court of Queen Elizabeth I. The success of Merrie England established Edward German's position as heir apparent to Arthur Sullivan at the Savoy Theater. His engaging and colorful score combined with a witty libretto has been performed more often than any other British operetta written in the 20th century.

Approximate Run Time: Merrie England plays in approximately 2 hours and 30 minutes, with one ten-minute intermission.
