Portland Opera: The Pirates of Penzance
May 9, 11m, 13, 15, 17, 2014
A young apprentice's overzealous passion for his duty ends in an absurd meeting of pirates, policemen and of course, the girl he loves.
Our staging of this whimsical tale of comic adventure on the high seas is inspired by the hit production in Ashland and reimagined for the Keller stage. Bill Rauch (Oregon Shakespeare Festival, Artistic Director) makes his Portland Opera directorial debut. Under Rauch's direction the production was praised by The Oregonian as "an effortlessly freewheeling romp."
Sung in English with projections above the stage.
Run time is approximately 2 hours and 30 minutes.
