The Pirates of Penzance

  • Pirates of Penzance, 2006

Music by Arthur Sullivan
Libretto by W.S. Gilbert

Gilbert and Sullivan’s beloved comic operetta tells of the coming of age of Frederic, indentured to pirates as a boy, and his desire to leave the buccaneer’s life and marry beautiful Mabel. But first, he must find a way to defeat the swashbucklers he’s known and loved all his life. In keeping with the play’s long tradition, CU Opera’s performances will be spiced up with wry contemporary political references.
