Gilbert & Sullivan – The Pirates of Penzance

December 4, 2024

Batten down the hatches. Strike the colours. The pirates are back. The ENO’s smash-hit production of Gilbert & Sullivan’s swashbuckling farce returns shortly – and is set to get audiences toe-tapping along all over again.

With its splendidly silly storyline, wild wordplay and well-loved songs, this Mike Leigh-created production is irresistibly feel-good. An apprentice pirate woos the Major General’s daughter, while his bungling buccaneer-shipmates try to outwit an equally inept party of policemen. Its vibrant staging brings out the sunshine in the story.

The Pirates of Penzance is one of Gilbert & Sullivan’s most popular operas and contains some of their most memorable melodies including, ‘I am the Very Model of a Modern Major General’, ‘A Policeman’s Lot is Not a Happy One’ and ‘With Cat-like Tread’.

This revival is directed by Sarah Tipple and conducted by Natalie Murray Beale. G&S favourites and ENO regulars Richard Suart and John Savournin are the Major General and the Pirate King respectively. Meanwhile, ENO Harewood Artist, Isabelle Peters sings the role of Mabel, and former Harewood Artist William Morgan is Frederic.

Having seen a couple of Gilbert & Sullivan productions in recent years at Wilton’s Music Hall, I am pleased to be able to offer this opportunity in the West End. The cost of a trip like this was never going to come cheap, but it’s one of their finest being performed in a most beautiful venue by the country’s leading operatic company. 

There is some flexibility on price at least, with you being able to choose which seats you would like. All tickets are currently in the Dress Circle. The more expensive option being slightly further forward and the slightly lower price option being behind these.

Offer Price £89.50 or £105.00

to include return coach and either an £80 or £100 ticket respectively, all booking & admin fees and driver’s gratuity.

Pick-up 4.30pm
Location: Dorking Halls
