“A British tar is a soaring soul,
As free as a mountain bird,
His energetic fist should be ready to resist
A dictatorial word”

Our Production of H.M.S. Pinafore

H.M.S. Pinafore opened in London in 1878, and became the first great success by Gilbert and Sullivan. We chose to set our production one hundred years later, in 1978, on a British cruise liner bound for the imaginary tropical island of Barataria.
