Now. Sea. Here. The seaworthy musical satire H.M.S. Pinafore put the wind in Gilbert & Sullivan's sails. The captain's daughter has caught the eye—and the heart—of two men at once: a lowly sailor and the pompous Sir Joseph Porter. Only Little Buttercup can resolve the mismatched mess.
Ride a wave of music and laughter as romantic sailors, sisters, cousins, and aunts sing and dance their way across the deck of the fanciful British naval vessel with the improbable name. Set directly on the ship’s deck, this energetic production offers the rich sounds of a full orchestra, chorus, and soloists who seamlessly merge the classic elegance of the musical with a contemporary sense of humor to keep the show alive and exciting for a modern audience.
H.M.S. Pinafore, or The Lass That Loved A Sailor was first performed at the Opera Comique in London, England on May 25, 1878, and has remained popular on both sides of the Atlantic ever since.
