Charles Court Opera are delighted to bring their fresh take on HMS Pinafore to the 2019 Festival. The earliest enduring success of Gilbert and Sullivan’s famous collaboration remains a firm favourite with audiences, telling the story of Josephine, the Captain’s daughter, and her love for lowly sailor Ralph Rackstraw, despite being promised in marriage to the first lord of the Admiralty. With many well-known songs, this brand new production promises rollicking choruses, unique wit and infectious energy – suitable for all ages!
