And turned out "Trial by Jury. The opening night audience was also delighted by the piece, preferring it even to the Offenbach work: On the contrary, it may fairly be said to have borne away the palm. Sullivan, whose blending of official dignity, condescension, and, at the right moment, extravagant humour, made the character of the Judge stand out with all requisite prominence, and added much to the interest of the piece.
Fisher the DefendantJohn Hollingsworth the Counsel and others were also praised for their acting. InGilbert's first biographer, Edith A. Walbrook similarly wrote in The piece is a riot of laughter. The Judge's ditty, "When first, my friends, I was called to the Bar," [ sic ] is the best-known comic song in the English language.
In none of the operas is the genius of Gilbert as an inventor of "comic business" more daringly and irresistibly exhibited. One can see the piece again and again and discover fresh strokes of comicality.
Its place in the Gilbert and Sullivan repertory is as secure as ever; and whatever reforms may be hereafter effected in this particular department of the King's Bench DivisionTrial by Jury will probably long continue to be one of the English-speaking world's refreshments.
The court of law had become the scene of humor and frivolity; the learned judge had shown himself to be as fickle as the defendant, and the justice system turned out to be flawed by human frailty.
And Sullivan had grasped the joke From the first chords Sullivan's music sets the scene of mock-seriousness and proceeds to dance its way through the whole piece.

For example, all except The Yeomen of the Guard begin with a chorus number. As Gilbert scholar Andrew Crowther explains, Gilbert combines his criticisms with comic entertainment, which renders them more palatable, while at the same time underlining their truth: In most earlier operas, burlesquesand comedies, the chorus had very little impact on the plot and served mainly as "noise or ornament".
It was in 'Thespis' that Gilbert began to carry out his expressed determination to get the chorus to play its proper part in the performance. At this moment it seems difficult to realise that the idea of the chorus being anything more than a sort of stage audience was, at that time, a tremendous novelty.

St Vincent and created a model set for the carpenters to work from. He notes that in some of Gilbert's early libretti, such as Topsyturveydomthe songs simply emphasise the dialogue. In others, such as Thespissome songs are relatively disconnected from both the story and characterisation, such as "I once knew a chap" or "Little maid of Arcadee", which simply convey a moral lesson.
In addition, unlike some of Gilbert's more fantastical early plots, "Aside from the ending, nothing essentially improbable happens.
