Virginia Opera: H.M.S. Pinafore
- December 5, 2014 at 8:00 pm
Set sail on the high seas as Virginia Opera performs Gilbert & Sullivan's beloved maritime masterpiece. All aboard the grand British naval ship, H.M.S. Pinafore, where the Captain plans to wed his dear daughter to the First Lord of the Admiralty, despite her forbidden love for a sailor of humble means. Hilarity ensues and secrets are revealed when the young couple ignores social convention and plans to elope. Filled with toe-tapping tunes, saucy satire, and nutty nautical humor, it is easy to see why this timeless comic operetta was Gilbert & Sullivan's first international sensation, and remains one of the opera world’s most popular works. Sung in English with English supertitles.
