Portland Opera: The Pirates of Penzance

A young apprentice’s overzealous passion for his duty ends in an absurd meeting of pirates, policemen and of course, the girl he loves. Our staging of this whimsical tale of comic adventure on the high seas is inspired by the hit production in Ashland and reimagined for the Keller stage. Bill Rauch (Oregon Shakespeare Festival, Artistic Director) makes his Portland Opera directorial debut, Daniel Gary Busby, conductor.

Under Rauch’s direction the production was praised by The Oregonian as “an effortlessly freewheeling romp.” Performance repeats May 11, 2:00 pm, May 15 and 17, 7:30 pm. For ticket information please call the Portland Opera Box Office at 503-241-1802.

Sung in English with projections above the stage.
