HMS Pinafore

HMS Pinafore

Cambridge University Gilbert & Sullivan Society

Thursday 9th February 2017

7:45 pm

Cambridge University’s Gilbert and Sullivan Society return to West Road Concert Hall for the fourth year in a row with a spectacular performance of HMS Pinafore.

Sailor Ralph Rackstraw and the Captain’s daughter Josephine are madly in love, though neither dares declare it, divided as they are by the barriers of class. But when Josephine’s father Captain Corcoran attempts to arrange a match for her with Sir Joseph Porter, the lovers are galvanised into action, aided and abetted by Ralph’s fellow sailors and Sir Joseph’s tender-hearted sisters, cousins and aunts. Will Josephine ever be with the one she loves or will the prejudices of class separate them for good?

With its rousing anthems and beautiful arias, this satirical tale of forbidden love and shocking revelations of class and identity is one of the most enduringly popular of Gilbert and Sullivan’s great comic creations.
