"Bon Ton Gavotte" was written by my great-grandfather George Wells. He wrote many operettas for Lillian Russell. They did work with Gilbert and Sullivan during their musical careers.

Melanie, how lovely that you've found this family connection!

I credit your great-grandfather for the music "Bon Ton Gavotte" in my earlier post on it, which you may find here. The dance was choreographed by J. S. Christy.
