On the coast of Cornwall, a band of tender-hearted pirates celebrate the coming of age of Frederic, who was mistakenly apprenticed to the pirates until his 21st birthday. Now, Frederic has vowed to devote his life to the extermination of piracy - until a ludicrous leap year snag threatens to keep him apprenticed to the pirates for life! Throw in a bevy of beauties, a brash Pirate King, the delightfully stuffy Major-General Stanley and you've got a masterpiece of musical theatre.
Patter songs are a Gilbert & Sullivan trademark, and Pirates features the most famous of them all, ‘I am the very model of a modern Major-General’, as well as highlights like Mabel’s show-stopping coloratura aria ‘Poor Wandering One’.
