WMG: Ruddigore

The events depicted in Ruddigore take place before those in The Sorcerer, H.M.S. Pinafore, and The Pirates of Penzance.
Zorah, Ruth, and Dick appear elsewhere in the G&S ‘verse! As older characters with lower voices!
  • Zorah moves to Ploverleigh and marries Mr. Partlet. By the time of Sorcerer, she’s a middle-aged widow with a young daughter (Constance).
  • As Ruth starts to go a bit deaf, she finds it increasingly difficult to keep up with all those three-part harmonies in the bridesmaid chorus. So she finds a new job as a nurserymaid… and accidentally apprentices Frederic to a band of pirates.
  • Dick Deadeye of H.M.S. Pinafore is an older, uglier, and more jaded version of Dick Dauntless.
