WVD Press

Publishing new editions of
conductor's scores and orchestral parts for
Gilbert & Sullivan operettas
and other light operas

WVD Press was founded in 1994 by William V. Dorwart, who has for many years been a pit cellist for musical theater productions, most notably with The Rose Valley Chorus and Orchestra.  Out of frustration with the errors and illegibility of the Kalmus orchestral parts for the Gilbert & Sullivan operettas came the inspiration to create new editions of all these shows.

WVD Press scores, published by a musician, are very player-friendly:

Full conductor's scores are printed 11x14", and parts in the10x13" sheet music size.

PLEASE NOTE:  WVD Press does not have piano/vocal scores for any work except for Naughty Marietta..

The following Gilbert & Sullivan shows have been completed:

The following shows and numbers by other composers are also available: Prices:
