The Pirates of Penzance

Showing on Tue 26 Feb

Showing times: 19:30 - 19:30

Theatre Duration:
Merry Opera comes for the first time to the Elgiva Theatre with an exuberant production of Gilbert and Sullivan’s Pirates of Penzance.

Buckle your swash and enjoy an evening packed full of sentimental pirates, blundering policemen, absurd adventures, improbable paradoxes - and realistic women. A cocktail of Victorian light party fun with a twist of Merry Opera.

Merry Opera is a professional opera company that has been touring for the last 10 years. Our singers go on to Glyndebourne, Grange Park, Wexford and young artists' programmes in Frankfurt, Stuttgart and Freiburg. The leading ladies in our la Traviata which we toured to Malaysia in 2012 were snapped up by Wexford and Vienna for that same role. One of our singers won the Bayreuth Wagner prize and has since sung at the Royal Opera House and the Festival Hall. Opera Now magazine wrote: 'Merry Opera has a nice line in these slightly off-beat touring shows, performing them with charm, energy and wit'. The Daily Telegraph wrote: 'The future of opera is being seeded here, and it needs nurturing'.
The Pirates is directed by John Ramster, who most recently directed Wagner’s Flying Dutchman in Norway.
