I presume this also happened to Sullivan's 1897 Alhambra ballet Victoria and Merrie England, luckily published in piano score and since re-orchestrated.

I think I recall reading that the MS of Victoria and Merrie England was destroyed in that fire at Chapell's but I could be wrong.

It was published by Metzler, so it must have vanished long before the towering inferno that was the Chappell tragedy.


The whole score was published for solo piano and three suites were also drawn from the ballet: the first survives in its original orchestral form and has been recorded a couple of times, but all three were published as piano duets (dedication copies from Sullivan to Mrs Ronalds are in the Pierpont Morgan Library, New York).

Looks like I was wrong, then. It wasn't the first time and, unless I die in the next few minutes, it probably won't be the last!
