Following on the Hospice Choir's acclaimed concert presentations of Trial by Jury, The Gondoliers and Carmen, this June, 2018, it's the turn of The Pirates of Penzance first produced in New York City in 1879 with a subsequent highly successful run in London in 1880.

Frederic, on attaining his majority, is released from apprenticeship to a band of friendly Cornish pirates. He meets, and falls in love with, Mabel, daughter of a Major-General. Being a leap year baby means that his 21st birthday involves service for a further 63 years. Mabel agrees to wait faithfully for this slave of duty.

The opera is set on the coast of Cornwall during the reign of Queen Victoria and contains numerous hit numbers including the much-parodied Major General's Song.

The roles of the Chorus are focused on
PIRATES
POLICE
and
GENERAL STANLEY'S DAUGHTERS
