Gilbert & Sullivan Opera Sydney presents

HMS Pinafore

29 Sep 2024 Showing at The Art House Theatre



Come aboard! And weigh anchor for a voyage of the heart in Gilbert & Sullivan Opera Sydney's hilarious production of HMS Pinafore.

Chock-a-block with humour, romance, spirited melodies & gorgeous ballads, Gilbert and Sullivan's wildly popular operetta is a sparkling and timeless send up of the British class system and politicians.  

It’s a quest of seemingly impossible love between high-born Josephine, daughter of the Pinafore's Captain, and the lowly ranked sailor, Ralph Rackstraw.  

Bisect the love triangle that arises when puffed up Sir Joseph Porter, First Lord of the Admiralty, embarks to stalk the same lovely Josephine.  

How can this possibly end well? A clue surfaces with Buttercup, a travelling chandler, whose impossibly over-sized handbag has everything that a lonely sailor could possibly need - and a secret as well.  

With a thirty-strong cast of sailors and Sir Joseph’s extended female relatives, in true G and S style the merriment is accompanied by a rollicking live orchestra.
