Set on a ship, this show explores the relationship between Josephine, the Captain’s daughter, and Ralph, a lower-class sailor. Social class becomes an obstacle for the pair as Josephine’s father attempts to marry her to the First Lord of the Admiralty. Will his mind be changed when he finds himself in a similar position, when Buttercup, a nanny, falls in love with him?
Following the sell-out productions of “Opera of Ages” and The Magic Flute, DOE have had a fantastic year, most recently with their run of HMS PInafore in Durham. We are delighted to bring this wonderful performance to London this Summer. Featuring “When I was a Lad” and “I am the Monarch of the Sea”, HMS Pinafore marks one of Gilbert and Sullivan’s most renowned operettas.
