The Pirates of Penzance | Theatre Royal
Tue 25 Jun - Sat 29 Jun
This lavish new production from Scottish Opera, D’Oyly Carte and the producers of the recent smash hit South Pacific gives you Gilbert & Sullivan as it’s meant to be – pure, uncomplicated fun!
A young man bound by an overactive sense of duty, a soft-hearted pirate king with a hopeless band of rogues at his side, a beautiful young girl, a very modern major-general and an ineffectual bevy of policemen…add a plot hinging on the technicalities of having a birthday on the 29th of February and we’re just about there. What could possibly go wrong?
Gilbert’s high speed patter is razor sharp and Sullivan’s score sees him at the top of his game, with the catchy tunes for which he is so well known. Conducted by G&S expert John Owen Edwards and directed by Martin Lloyd-Evans, the fantastic ensemble cast includes a horde of young, fresh talent as well as G&S stars Steven Page as The Pirate King and Richard Suart as the Major-General.
With Scottish Opera’s reputation for top quality production values and D'Oyly Carte’s deep knowledge and expertise of the duo’s work, you will re-discover the joy of Gilbert & Sullivan’s sharp wit and unforgettable songs in this vibrant, stylish show.
