IN ENGLISH WITH ENGLISH SURTITLES

Gilbert and Sullivan’s rollicking comedy centers on the romantic misadventures of Mabel and Frederic, who was mistakenly apprenticed to a band of “reluctant” pirates. Add to that a very model of a modern Major-General, his bevy of beautiful daughters, and a bungling bunch of Keystone Cops–style police, and you have the delightfully wacky operetta that has amused audiences since its 1879 debut. 

Twists and turns abound, interspersed with some of Gilbert and Sullivan’s most delightful melodies. Set sail with the jolliest group of pirates to swab a stage! It’s a voyage perfect for the whole family!
