Internationally acclaimed, The Savoy Company will present Gilbert & Sullivan’s comic opera H.M.S. PINAFORE under the stars on the stage of the Open Air Theatre amid the tranquil beauty of Longwood Gardens featuring gorgeous, professionally designed set pieces, beautiful costumes, & a professional orchestra. Performances begin at 8:30 pm. ALL DAY ADMISSION TO THE GARDENS IS INCLUDED. Note the Rain date policy.
H.M.S. PINAFORE delights the audience with the nautical tale of star-crossed lovers — the Captain’s daughter Josephine & the gallant but lower class sailor Ralph. Sought in marriage by Sir Joseph (First Lord of the Admiralty), Josephine plans to elope with Ralph until thwarted by another sailor, Dick Deadeye. Little Buttercup tells a secret that saves the day!
H.M.S. PINAFORE features some of the most memorable Gilbert & Sullivan songs including: “We sail the ocean blue,” “I’m called Little Buttercup,” & “I am the monarch of the sea.” Celebrating its 117th season, The Savoy Company is the oldest theater company in the world dedicated solely to the production of the 13 surviving immortal operas of Gilbert & Sullivan & promises H.M.S. PINAFORE to be a seaworthy love story, a delight for the whole family!
