Music by Arthur Sullivan
Lyrics by W.S. Gilbert
H.M.S. Pinafore is a (mostly) cheerful operetta created by the famous pair, Gilbert and Sullivan. The Pinafore and her Captain find themselves mired in a mess of love triangles, class confusion and rules of etiquette, with each character harboring their own secrets. Gilbert's clever score is full of delightful airs, cheerful ensembles and the duo's speciality, catchy patter songs. The show ends with a last minute plot twist that will leave audiences surprised and satified.
