Gilbert and Sullivan’s beloved operetta, The Pirates of Penzance, returns to Opera Saratoga in a new, action-packed, dance-filled production for the entire family. Young pirate-in-training Frederic can’t wait for his 21st birthday, the day his erroneous pirate apprenticeship ends….or does it? Born in a Leap Year, Frederic discovers he must remain with the raucous band and delay a future with the lovely Mabel who promises to wait for him, much to the chagrin of her father, the Major General. Bound by his own sense of duty and loyalty to the Pirate King, will Frederic be forced to sail away into the sunset alone or fly high on the seas of love? The most famous patter song in all of opera, “I am the very model of a modern Major General…” is but one of the memorable melodies in this tuneful, swashbuckling farce. Directed and choreographed by Eve Summer, a distinguished alumna of Opera Saratoga’s Directing Fellowship Program, this new production will showcase members of Opera Saratoga’s Young Artist Program. The production will be conducted by Brian DeMaris in his company debut.
