WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
This traditional production presents The Pirates of Penzance in all its swashbuckling glory. With direction by Lillian Groag (Girl of the Golden West) and picture-perfect period costumes and sets, this Gilbert & Sullivan favorite both satirizes and pays homage to the Victorian era and 19th-century grand opera. The show features Marc Kudisch as the Pirate King. Pirates lavishes musical riches upon inspired silliness, boasting the most famous patter song in all of G&S: "I am the very model of a modern Major General." Also included in the show are parodies of French waltzes, Italian opera scenas, and even Verdi's famous "Anvil Chorus." Do to variations in the weekly performance schedule, please visit New York City Opera for a complete listing of show dates and times.
