WQXR Family Concert: The Pirates of Penzance

Originally Aired: Thursday June 7, 2018

Amore Opera's 'Pirates of Penzance

Join us for a special all-kids production of “The Pirates of Penzance,” Gilbert & Sullivan’s most popular operetta.

Performed by the Amore Opera, this version is presented in full production in a slightly abridged version suitable for children. With its rollicking tunes by Arthur Sullivan and its hilarious satire by William Gilbert, “The Pirates of Penzance,” 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.
