HMS Pinafore

By Gilbert & SullivanBuxton Opera Housebutton--dates-and-timesDates & Times

The acclaimed National Gilbert & Sullivan Opera Company sail back into Buxton with the first of three brand-new productions for their 2017 season. 

HMS Pinafore is one of the most enduringly popular of Gilbert & Sullivan’s great comic creations, with many well-known songs including I am the Monarch of the sea, I’m called little Buttercup and He is an Englishman

The story takes place aboard HMS Pinafore where the captain’s daughter, Josephine, falls in love with a lower-class sailor instead of her father’s choice, Sir Joseph Porter, the First Lord of the Admiralty.

Ralph and Josephine declare their love for each other and decide to elope. The captain discovers their plan, but in true Gilbertian form a surprise disclosure changes things dramatically

So get on board and book your tickets for this much-loved nautical comic opera.

“Hurray for the fun and frivolous English!  HMS Pinafore is a riot of all singing all dancing nonsense...”
