    By Gilbert & Sullivan

    The very first of Gilbert and Sullivan's big successes, HMS Pinafore, or The Lass That Loved a Sailor, depicts the adventures of Captain Corcoran as he tries to persuade his wilful daughter, the beautiful Josephine, not to marry Ralph, a common sailor below her station, while simultaneously attempting to persuade Sir Joseph Porter, the First Lord of the Admiralty (with sisters, cousins and aunts always in tow) that marrying below his station, to Josephine, would indeed be an honour to all involved. After a planned elopement, an excess of mad plotting and of course much hornpiping, they all find out love may indeed level all ranks, but not as much as that.
