As part of Opera Anywhere’s ‘Gilbert & Sullivan Festival on tour’ , the wonderful and popular ‘The Pirates of Penzance’
An unfortunate case of mishearing initiates the plot for The Pirates of Penzance, resulting in a dramatic change of direction for Frederic who sets course to become a pirate rather than a ‘pilot’! The twists and turns of this classic operetta unfold with ingenious characters, sublime lyrics and some of the best-known songs in opera!
