HMS Pinafore
February 15th & 17th, 2013

Gilbert and Sullivan's rollicking romp through naval life, class distinctions, and melodramatic villainy has entertained millions since its London premiere.   Josephine, the Captain's daughter, is in love with able seaman Ralph Rackstraw. But her father has other plans for her: an advantageous union with the exalted Sir Joseph Porter, K.C.B. When the young couple's elopement is thwarted by cantankerous seaman Dick Deadeye, it remains for Little Buttercup to confess that her baby-farming techniques had left something to be desired.

H.M.S. Pinafore was performed on February 15th and 17th at Pittsburg's Memorial Auditorium. Both performances were accompanied by the Southeast Kansas Symphony under the direction of Raúl Antonio Munguía.

The PSU Opera Workshop is directed by Patrick Howle.
