HMS Pinafore

Presented by Carl Rosa Opera

John Savident as Sir Joseph Porter

John Savident stars in this nautical tale of the lass that loved a sailor.

An hilarious tale of love, hypocrisy and mistaken identity unravels when the Captain's daughter falls secretly in love with a common sailor. Pledged by her father to marry the head of the British Navy - Sir Joseph Porter - young Josephine finds herself hopelessly torn between love and duty. But a remarkable twist of fate changes all, when a long-kept secret is let slip, somersaulting our heroes into a heady climax of fun, frivolity and fortune.

A musical delight that everyone will enjoy, this sea-faring smash-hit show performed by Carl Rosa Opera's superb cast and orchestra is bursting with Gilbert's brilliant satirical wit and packed with some of Sullivan's most popular songs.
