Sentimental pirates, blundering policeman, absurd adventures and improbable paradoxes – Gilbert and Sullivan’s dazzling The Pirates of Penzance comes to the English National Opera in a highly anticipated new production from renowned filmmaker Mike Leigh (Mr. Turner, Topsy- Turvy), directing his first-ever opera for the stage.
“Pricelessly funny … an entirely delightful evening.” – Stage
This much-loved comic opera is a showcase of brilliant humor and razor-sharp wit and features a sparkling score chock-full of memorable melodies and catchy tunes, including “A Policeman’s Lot is Not a Happy One” and “I am the Very Model of a Modern Major General.” With stylish designs from Alison Chitty, this vibrant production is conducted by David Parry. The superb cast includes the ever-versatile Andrew Shore as the very model of a modern Major-General, Jonathan Lemalu as the affectionate parody of the British bobby, Robert Murray as the innocent pirate-apprentice Frederic, and Rebecca de Pont Davies as the older woman who has designs on him. (Estimated runtime: 140 mins., Not Rated / Suitable for all ages)
