I'm not a Gilbert and Sullivan person, but here goes. Jack Point is in their
Yeoman of the Guard.

According to http://diamond.idbsu.edu/GaS/yeomen/html/yeomen_home.html

"Colonel Fairfax, sentenced to die in an hour on a false charge of sorcery,
marries Elsie Maynard, a strolling singer. But then he escapes, causing
complications. At the end Elsie's boyfriend, Jack Point, dies of a broken
heart. Or does he? The nearest that G&S came to grand opera."

There is a longer synopsis at
http://diamond.idbsu.edu/GaS/yeomen/html/plot_sum.html

Jack Point is a jester who Does the Right Thing Nobly. Lord Peter Wimsey
mentions him at one point, by the way, which is where I initially
encountered him.
