ATLANTA OPERA: PIRATES OF PENZANCE
As Frederic enters the rank of full pirate at the end of his apprenticeship, he and his fellow pirates court the daughters of Major-General Stanley. This sets off a hilarious course of riotous events that pit Frederic against his pirate clan. The Pirates of Penzance is a rollicking show with serious operatic chops.
Seán Curran will direct this exciting interpretation of a Gilbert & Sullivan classic. David Agler will conduct. Bass Kevin Burdette, known for his energy and comedic range, sings the role of the Pirate King in his Atlanta debut.
