2023-2024 Season

Our spring mainstage:
Gilbert & Sullivan's H.M.S. Pinafore!

Among Gilbert & Sullivan's most popular works, H.M.S. Pinafore; or, The Lass That Loved a Sailor satirizes patriotism, meritocracy, and the 19th century British class system through a comical tale of star-crossed love on the sea. On the Royal Navy ship H.M.S. Pinafore,, Josephine, the daughter of the ship's Captain, falls for the lowly sailor Ralph Rackstraw. However, she is forced to choose between her true love and her duty to her father, who intends for her to marry Sir Joseph Porter, the First Lord of the Admiralty...
Pinafore deals in themes of love and duty, with absurdity to spare. Come set sail with us this April!

This production is a collaboration with Yale Undergraduate Chamber Orchestra.
