This is achieved through the same singer-actors playing the creators and their creation and the drama happening in a Victorian study which is transformed into a Venetian scene. In the second half of the opera, in Barataria, we do have a new set but when a wall is breached it reveals that study behind the fallen façade. D’Oyly Carte becomes the Grand Inquisitor in the Venetian romp.
