Light Opera of Portland performs Gilbert & Sullivan’s “Pirates of Penzance,” a favorite with audiences since its first performance more than 125 years ago. It is a tale for all ages, complete with swashbuckling hijinks, clueless cops, frolicking maidens, and a famously bumbling Major-General. Directed by Dennis Britten, a 55-year veteran of musical theater, ‘Pirates’ is performed under the musical direction of Dr. Linda Smith. Light Opera of Portland is a resident musical repertory company performing live light opera and musical theatre productions and specializing in the works of Gilbert & Sullivan. Friday and Saturday night performances are at 7 p.m. on Feb. 17, 18, 24, 25 and March 3, 4. Sunday matinee performances at 3 pm are on Feb. 19, 26, and Mar. 5. All performances are at the Multnomah Arts Center, 7688 SW Capitol Highway, Portland. For details and tickets, visit the LOoP website.
