Watch an encore video stream of this delightful all-kids production of The Pirates of Penzance, Gilbert & Sullivan’s most popular operetta.
Performed by the Amore Opera and recorded on our stage in 2018, this version is presented in a slightly abridged version suitable for children. With its rollicking tunes by Arthur Sullivan and its hilarious satire by William Gilbert, the operetta continues to be one of the great joys of the English-speaking theatre.
Iris Karlin conducts, with staging by Amore Opera’s artistic director, Nathan Hull.
Watch our video stream on this page at 10am ET.
