Adventure on the high seas! Set sail for one of Gilbert & Sullivan’s most popular hits, the irrepressible, irresponsible, but irresistible Pirates of Penzance!

In a world where steam is supreme… It’s The Pirates of Penzance as you’ve never seen it before!

GSOV proudly presents a bold new vision of one of Gilbert & Sullivan’s most popular hits, reimagined with inventive flair by director Nicholas Renfree-Marks, and featuring the magnificent GSOV live orchestra conducted by the incomparable Trevor Henley.

An alternate England during WW1… A pirate ship to capture your imagination!

Starring seasoned performers from opera, musical theatre and comedy, this madcap melee of maidens fair and feisty, pirates rum-filled and rumbustious, police crafty but cowardly and a sweetheart who’s a slave to duty, showcases Gilbert & Sullivan at their best and brightest – a consistent fan favourite for music-lovers worldwide.

Set sail for action and adventure and expect nothing short of steampunk stunts, swordplay and sensational singing. Don’t miss this show!
