The Pirates of Penzance at King's Head Theatre
Charles Court Opera presents The Pirates of Penzance, the comic operetta by Gilbert & Sullivan, at The King's Head Theatre, a fringe pub venue in Angel, north London, from 4 to 29 Sep 2012.
It is directed by John Savournin, designed by Annie Loach, lighting by Nic Holdridge, costumes by Martina Trottmann, and musical director is David Eaton.
This production is set in an imaginative child's bedroom, with a cast of 10 singers.
Featuring a band of tender-hearted pirates, their naïve apprentice Frederic and the very model of a modern Major-General, The Pirates of Penzance is 'packed with mayhem, hilarity, and wildly-popular musical numbers' including ''Poor Wandering One', 'A Paradox' and 'A Policeman's lot is not a happy one'.
