A Synopsis of “Eyes and No Eyes”

“Eyes and No Eyes” is a Gilbert play from the
the days prior to his collaboration with Sullivan.
Music is by Florian Pascal. “Eyes” is Gilbert’s
version of Hans Christian Andersen’s “The Emperor’s
New Clothes”, involving a cloak being first described
as visible only to true lovers, then, in accordance
with a plot twist, being visible only to “flirts”.
