Pirates of Penzance, 2003

piratesBook: Sir William Schwenck Gilbert
Music: Sir Arthur Seymour Sullivan
Lyrics: Sir William Schwenck Gilbert

This fresh take on one of Gilbert and Sullivan’s most popular comic operas took New York by storm when it premiered in Central Park in 1980, leading to a subsequent smash-hit Broadway run.

Wacky, irreverent and as entertaining today as it was when it first opened in 1879, The Pirates of Penzance spins an hilarious farce of sentimental pirates, bumbling policemen, dim-witted young lovers, dewy-eyed daughters and an eccentric Major-General, all morally bound to the often-ridiculous dictates of honor and duty.
