Trial by Jury backgrounds

In animation, things move very slowly. Here are some background designs for the Gilbert and Sullivan project. I hope to have coloured versions by the time I return from a month lecturing in Moscow!

I was optimistic!

DECEMBER update:

(My “month” in Moscow was lingering and I returned properly at the end of December. I will post something later about the Russian Ministry of Education and the chaos in MPGU that both preceded and has followed their sudden intervention.)

I would like to see versions of “Trial by Jury “in intelligent translations. This is an opera about corruption, legal absurdity and the devaluation, or even a redefinition of marriage. It is certainly, therefore, a story relevant today in many countries. Gilbert wrote the piece within months of a major streamlining of the legal system. It is as if he were observing that, even with the best will in the world, a system that is so entrenched in corruption will not be cleaned up overnight!
