Gilbert and Sullivan as it's meant to be -- pure, uncomplicated fun, performed to the highest standards. This new co-production with D'Oyly Carte Opera Company -- returning to the stage for the first time in over 10 years -- brings the humour bang up to date with a Python-esque twinkle. A vibrant, stylish and hilarious romp through one of G&S's finest scores, this show has everything you could want from a great night out.

A young man bound by an overactive sense of duty, a soft-hearted pirate king with a hopeless band of rogues at his side, a beautiful young girl, a very modern major-general and an ineffectual bevy of policemen...add a plot hinging on the technicalities of having a birthday on the 29th of February and we're just about there. What could possibly go wrong?

Gilbert's high speed patter is razor sharp and Sullivan's score sees him at the top of his game, with the catchy tunes for which he is so well known. Conducted by G&S expert John Owen Edwards and directed by Martin Lloyd-Evans, the fantastic ensemble cast includes a horde of young, fresh talent as well as G&S stars Steven Page as The Pirate King and Richard Suart as the Major-General.
