A swashbuckling farce of brilliant humour and razor-sharp wit, Gilbert and Sullivan’s THE PIRATES OF PENZANCE makes for the perfect night out. Chock-full of memorable melodies, it includes the famous tongue-twisting patter song from the Major-General and the cowardly Police Sergeant’s ‘When a felon’s not engaged in his employment’.
For the first revival of this smash-hit production from renowned filmmaker Mike Leigh, ENO favourite Andrew Shore returns to sing the role of the army general alongside John Tomlinson as the Sergeant of Police. ENO Harewood Artists David Webb and Soraya Mafi sing the roles of the young lovers, Frederic and Mabel, and Gareth Jones conducts.
