'''''The Yeomen of the Guard, or, The Merryman and his Maid''''' is an opera by Creator/GilbertAndSullivan. Though generally considered a "comic opera," it is notable as the team's [[SeriousBusiness most serious]] work. (Sir Henry Lytton wrote that Gilbert once told him that he had always intended Jack Point to die at the end, but had somewhat modified his intention due to the great comic reputation of George Grossmith, who originated the role.)

* HistoricalDomainCharacter: Sir Richard Cholmondeley was Lieutenant of the Tower of London from 1513 to 1520. [[note]]This indicates that the play is set early in the reign of King HenryVIII, although a reference to Anne Boleyn's execution suggests a date after 1536.[[/note]]
