Event 5: Pirates of Penzance: Opera Anywhere

7.30pm - Marden House - Admission £12 (Friends £8; £1 U18s)

OPERA ANYWHERE are delighted to be bringing The Pirates of Penzance by Gilbert and Sullivan to the wonderful intimate setting of Marden House. An unfortunate case of mishearing initiates the plot for The Pirates of Penzance, resulting in a dramatic change of direction for Frederic who sets course to become a pirate rather than a ‘pilot’! The twists and turns of this classic operetta unfold with ingenious characters, sublime lyrics and some of the best-known songs in opera (including the much-parodied 'Major-General's Song').
