No Gilbert and Sullivan comic opera boasts as many walk-away tunes as The Pirates of Penzance, the only collaboration of the pair to premiere on Broadway, and not in England. Building on the success of the previous year’s H.M.S. Pinafore, but trading—as their principal “serious” focus—the rigors of naval discipline for the obligations of duty, G&S manage to burlesque their normal share of popular institutions, including the army, the police, and operatic sopranos. Pirate apprentice Frederic, at age 21, has faithfully served out his indentures and, replete with a sense of duty, joins the police force, determined to exterminate his old mates. He falls in love with Mabel, the first girl he sees, but the daughter of Major-General Stanley, who himself is the target of a pirate revenge plot. Plans go awry when it is revealed that, thanks to a leap-day birth, Frederic is really only five and one-quarter years old. The engaging musical score includes some of the catchiest music in the G&S canon: Mabel’s pyrotechnic “Poor, wandering one;” the tongue-twisting patter song “I am the very model of a modern major-general;” “A policeman’s lot;” “Climbing over rocky mountain”—a survivor from Thespis, G&S’s lost first stage work; and “With catlike tread,” which, more than a quarter-century later, was given new words as “Hail, hail, the gang’s all here.” At The Egyptian Theatre.

BWW Review: PATIENCE, Hackney Empire
by Alexandra Coghlan - Mar 9, 2017

'What a very singularly deep young man that deep young man must be!' You don't have to look very far in selfie-taking 2017 for an equivalent to the narcissism and aestheticism that are so thoroughly sent up in Gilbert and Sullivan's 1881 Patience. So perhaps it's best that director Liam Steel has left all that to look after itself, and instead of a topical satire has produced an unapologetic period romp, with just a few too many smutty moments for complete comfort.

BWW Dance Review: Pennsylvania Ballet's LE CORSAIRE
by Barnett Serchuk - Mar 24, 2017

When Angel Corella assumed the position of Artistic Director of the Pennsylvania Ballet and didn't renew many contracts of its former dancers, there was a negative buzz all over. I can't comment on that, since I was not privy to any information, but judging by the performance of his new production of “Le Corsaire” on Sunday, April 20 2017, Corella has my great admiration and respect. In fact, this entire season has been one of artistic excellence and a new shot of creativity with dancers. After a shaky start with Corolla, the company has assumed a role as one of our top companies, something it never quite had in my estimation before. (more...)
