    Lent Week 3

    The Cambridge University Gilbert & Sullivan Society proudly presents THE PIRATES OF PENZANCE. This timeless comic opera comes to West Road Concert Hall from 5th to 8th February.

    Frederic has just finished his apprenticeship with a band of pirates; Mabel is out with her sisters for a day at the beach – they meet, and it's love at first sight. But the pirates have an unpleasant surprise in store for our hero…

    One of Gilbert & Sullivan’s best-loved comedies, The Pirates of Penzance features classic numbers such as ‘The Pirate King’, ‘I am the Very Model of a Modern Major General’, and ‘With Cat-like Tread’. Join a crop of not-so-ruthless pirates, not-so-fearless policemen, and not-so-helpless young maidens for a swashbuckling and hilarious adventure.
