Lock up your daughters, the pirates are coming to town! Peppered with unforgettable melodies and tongue-twisting songs, The Pirates of Penzance is one of the most popular operettas ever written. This promises to be a riot the moment the ship reaches shore.
‘Stuart Maunder’s production, Richard Roberts’ sets and Roger Kirk’s costumes enter into a delightful conspiracy which implicates every member of the cast – flamboyantly-attired pirates, virginally-white daughters, black-uniformed police.’ – North Shore Times
‘Warlow’s pirate king is a high camp, fast-talking, wise-cracking anti-hero, aided and abetted by a crew of golden-tonsilled buccaneers.’ – The Daily Telegraph
‘…a luminous cast, impeccable orchestra and spirited direction…’ – The Age
‘…you’ll love every moment of this joyful production.’ – The Australian
Recorded live at the Sydney Opera House, August 2006
