Richard Sheldon, founding director of the 20-year-old Opera a la Carte, has taught us to expect minor miracles from his local budget Gilbert-and-Sullivan troupe. But only veteran Savoyard Donald Adams, appearing as a guest, approached the ideal in the company's new production of "The Gondoliers" Saturday at Ambassador Auditorium in Pasadena. As the Grand Inquisitor (a role that, contrary to local advertisements, he never undertook with D'Oyly Carte), Adams sang with amplitude and security.

Richard Sheldon, founding director of the Los Angeles-based Gilbert and Sullivan troupe Opera a la Carte, can't count the number of times he's sung Sir Joseph Porter in "H.M.S. Pinafore." "It must be now into four figures," he said recently. "And I'm sure I've done just as many Major Generals (in 'The Pirates of Penzance')!"

With nary a hint of stultifying routine, Richard Sheldon and his modest but accomplished Opera a la Carte offered what might have been its umpteenth performance of Gilbert & Sullivan's "The Pirates of Penzance" on Saturday at Ambassador Auditorium in Pasadena. As Major-General Stanley, Sheldon sang his patter song with great clarity and acted with his customary authority.

Repeating his guest appearance in "The Gondoliers" at Ambassador Auditorium, veteran Gilbert & Sullivan basso Donald Adams again made Don Alhambra, the Grand Inquisitor, one of his more memorable portrayals. This despite the fact that in his decades of Savoyard experience, Adams never sang the role with his late, lamented home company, the D'Oyly Carte Opera.

Richard Sheldon's Opera a la Carte and the Irvine Symphony collaborated in a stylish but problematic production of Gilbert and Sullivan's "H.M.S. Pinafore" on Friday at the Orange County Performing Arts Center in Costa Mesa. Despite what sounded like amplification, Sullivan's wondrous music and much of Gilbert's witty lyrics were heard as if from a great distance in the cavernous, 3,000-seat Segerstrom Hall. Audible matters improved somewhat in the second act.
