York Opera, York’s leading amateur opera company, are proud to present; Gilbert and Sullivan’s well loved HMS Pinafore.
First performed in 1878, and one of the duo’s most popular operettas, it is a classical love story set on board a Royal Navy ship.
The story follows Ralph, a lovesick sailor and Josephine, the Captain’s daughter. Madly in love but kept apart by social hierarchy and the intentions of Sir Joseph Porter, first Lord of the Admiralty, ready to take Josephine for his own.
Filled with iconic musical numbers including ‘We sail the ocean blue’, ‘Never mind the why and wherefore’ and ‘When I was a lad’ this opera is loved by young and old alike.
