The Pirates of Penzance returns to the London Coliseum for first revival of this smash-hit production from renowned filmmaker Mike Leigh.
Leigh revels in the humour and absurdity of the plot which includes pirates, who take pity on orphans, are really peers of the realm. The 21-year-old, who has sworn to put them behind bars, is really only five. And the policemen, whose lot is not a happy one.
The Pirates of Penzance is full of memorable melodies, including the famous tongue-twisting patter song from the Major-General and the cowardly Police Sergeant’s ‘When a felon’s not engaged in his employment’.
ENO favourite Andrew Shore returns to sing the role of the army general alongside John Tomlinson as the Sergeant of Police. ENO Harewood Artists David Webb and Soraya Mafi sing the roles of the young lovers, Frederic and Mabel, and Gareth Jones conducts.
