Thoroughly enjoyable! The show was a visual treat and also included both comedy and serious operatic quality with the actress playing Mabel demonstrating impressive vocal range and the actor playing the Major General demonstrating mastery of the lyrics.
Pirates, romance, and trickery abound in Gilbert and Sullivan’s most popular operetta, including the tongue-twisting “I Am the Very Model of a Modern Major-General” and classic “Poor Wand’ring One.”
