Gilbert and Sullivan's satirical story of mistaken identity, love, intrigue and duty in the British navy, with irresistible tunes and hilariously intricate lyrics, is one of the legendary duo's most beloved operettas. HMS Pinafore is the tale of a gentlemanly captain who has arranged for his daughter to marry the First Lord of the Admiralty. The trouble is, she's already in love with a common sailor. The couple's plot to elope is discovered by the captain, but a surprise twist at the end changes everything. Poking good-natured fun at classism, this superb example of a Gilbert and Sullivan operetta has remained immensely popular throughout the 130-plus years since its debut and contributed significantly to the development of modern musical theater.
