PIRATES OF PENZANCE Begins Performances at King's Head Theatre, 4 September
Following their sell-out successes H.M.S. Pinafore and The Mikado, Charles Court Opera unveils a new production of Gilbert & Sullivan's comedy, The Pirates of Penzance, in a co-production with the King's Head Theatre.
It plays from Tuesday 4 September - Saturday 29 September.
Press night is Friday 7 September at 7.15pm
Featuring a band of tender-hearted pirates, their naïve apprentice Frederic and the very model of a modern Major-General, The Pirates of Penzance is packed with mayhem, hilarity, and wildly-popular musical numbers including 'Poor Wandering One', 'A Paradox' and 'A Policeman's lot is not a happy one'.
Director John Savournin sets this inventive new production in an imaginative child's bedroom, with a cast of 10 singers made up of some of the UK's finest young operatic talent, and a spritely piano-four-hands version of the orchestral score by the ever-enjoyable Eaton-Young Piano Duo.
