Inner Sound: Pirates of Penzance


Inner Sound are delighted to back at Aros again performing on of Gilbert & Sullivan’s most popular operas.

The Pirates of Penzance centre's around Frederic, who, having reached his 21st year, is released from his apprenticeship to a band of pirates. He meets Mabel, the daughter of Major-General, and they fall in love. Frederic soon learns, however, that he was born on the 29th of February, and so, technically, he is only 4. His indenture specifies that he remain apprenticed to the pirates until his "twenty-first birthday", meaning that he must serve another 63 years. Bound by his own sense of duty.
