W. S. Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan: HMS Pinafore

Your father is a captain and the Admiral of the Fleet wants to marry you. So how do you tell them that a mere able seaman has captured your heart? A flagship of Gilbert and Sullivan’s fleet of comic operas, HMS Pinafore is a tangled tale of love that cheekily defies the social and naval hierarchy.

It follows in the wake of The Pirates of Penzance, 2021’s rip-roaring collaboration between Charles Court Opera and Opera Holland Park.
