Lock up your daughters, the pirates are coming to town!
Peppered with unforgettable melodies and tongue-twisting songs, The Pirates of Penzance is one of the most popular operettas ever written. Opera Australia's new production is an effervescent smash hit with a national tour and jubilant sellout seasons everywhere.
In spite of being apprenticed to a Pirate King as a child, Frederic has led a very sheltered life. So when he arrives in Penzance with his boisterous shipmates, there are a few surprises in store for him! It all ends happily, but not before he's dodged the Old Bill, fallen in love and made some rather inconvenient discoveries.
Director Stuart Maunder (who last directed this show for D'Oyly Carte Company at London's Savoy Theatre), designers Roger Kirk, Richard Roberts and Trudy Dalgleish, choreographer Elizabeth Hill and a stellar cast join forces once again to present a spirited new production of this Gilbert and Sullivan classic.
This bright and breezy production is guaranteed to have you laughing all the way home - it's a big adventure book for boys where our swashbuckling Pirate King meets his match in the bumbling Major General.
