HMS Pinafore - November 2011

Full of zest and energy, life and laughs, HMS PINAFORE first set sail in 1878 in London. It has hardly been off the seas ever since.  The show features many toe-tapping songs interspersed with the soaring solos and beautiful ballads for which Sullivan is justly famous.’ Fair Moon, To Thee I Sing’ is a particular favourite. In addition, there is one of the best-known patter songs in Gilbert and Sullivan where Sir Joseph recounts his life history in ‘When I Was A Lad’. HMS PINAFORE is a show that offers light-hearted enjoyment for all ages.
