The last forty years have seen an explosion of serious and scholarly interest in the Savoy operas. This has been expressed in academic conferences, a number of significant books, and new scholarly editions of vocal and orchestral scores. Appreciation societies have stimulated interest in Gilbert and Sullivan and added considerably to the tally of publications and new recordings of their works. Perhaps most intriguing and encouraging of all, Gilbert and Sullivan have found serious scholars as well as fans outside the English-speaking world. Much of this academic work has made use of the major collections of Gilbert and Sullivan material now available to scholars. Probably the single most important is in the Pierpont Morgan Library in New York. It is based on the private collection of Reginald Allen, who deposited forty-eight packing cases of material in 1948 and became the first curator in 1972.
