The Pirates of Penzance

Sin City Opera brings to life the story of a young pirate-in-training, Frederic, who can’t wait for his 21st birthday, the day his accidental pirate apprenticeship ends….or does it? Born in a Leap Year, Frederic discovers he must remain with the raucous band of buccaneers and delay his future with the lovely Mabel who promises to wait, much to the chagrin of her father, the Major General. Bound by his own sense of duty and loyalty to the Pirate King, will Frederic be forced to sail away into the sunset alone or run off to fly high on the seas of love?

This traditional Gilbert and Sullivan presentation comes with a few Sin City Opera twists and includes one of the best patter songs of all time, along with swoon-fully, catchy tunes in this funny and hopeful operatic farce. You’ll be hooked on this swashbuckling favorite about love, laughter, and loyalty. The approximate run time is 2 hours and 20 minutes with no intermission.

Kicking off our ninth season, Las Vegas’ premier contemporary opera company, Sin City Opera is dedicated to bringing affordable opera and classical music to our community in fresh and exciting new ways.

” At the core of everything we do lies our mission to inspire, challenge, and uplift our audiences by celebrating with them the beauty and breadth of opera, opening the floor for dialogue about the relevance of the opera arts in our communities”.
