Lock up your daughters, the pirates are coming to town! As the curtain rises on this swashbuckling and mellifluous romance, we meet Frederic, an orphan who has mistakenly been apprenticed to an ineffectual but raucous band of pirates. He disavows the pirates' way of life and searches for the maiden of his dreams. Frederic's melodious tones win over the heart of Major General Stanley's songbird daughter, Mabel, but when the Pirate King discovers General Stanley has lied about being an orphan to keep the pirates from stealing all of his belongings and carrying off his bevy of beautiful daughters—mayhem ensues. This sparklingly witty operetta on the subject of romance and duty in the age of Queen Victoria makes for a perfect final act to our season.
