GILBERT & SULLIVAN: PIRATES OF PENZANCE (2 CDS)

$ 8.99 $ 16.56
In a high-spirited romp that irresistibly parodies the dramatic and musical gestures of Italian grand opera, The Pirates of Penzance tells the story of Frederic, apprenticed in error to a shipload of good-natured buccaneers. Famously featuring a loquacious major general and an ineffectual police squad, the operetta received its premiere in New York in 1879, thus pre-empting any ‘pirate’ American productions of the kind that followed the London success of its maritime predecessor, HMS Pinafore.
