Excellent voices with the cast members. Lyrics were hard to understand because of the speed with which they were sung (however written according to the script). Delightful interpretation and presentation.

Description

Gilbert and Sullivan’s Pirates of Penzance is a romantic comic opera that follows a foolish Major-General, an orphaned pirate king with plenty of salt and a band of buccaneers, and a poor wandering lass accompanied by dim-witted maidens. This beloved masterwork includes the songs “Poor Wand’ring One,” “I Am a Pirate King,” “A Policeman’s Lot is Not a Happy One” and “I Am the Very Model of a Modern Major-General.”
