Opera and Musical Theatre Series presents: Pirates of Penzance
Location: Duerksen Fine Arts Center, Miller Concert Hall
One of the most beloved of Gilbert and Sullivan operettas, Pirates of Penzance satirizes the operatic convention that traps the hero in conflict between love and duty. Our hero Fredrick has been brought up indentured to a band of Pirates, but being a noble lad, he detests the profession. On turning 21, he announces his intention to become an honest citizen. Confusion and merriment ensue as Fredrick falls for the lovely young Mabel but cannot marry her because of a technicality regarding his age. A delightful musical romp for the entire family. (Rating G)
