Overview

Gilbert and Sullivan's beloved comic operetta is captured live during 1994 performance at the Lyric Theater, Queensland Performing Arts Center in Australia in this release that features Jon English in the role of the Pirate King, and Simon Gallagher as the 19th Century aristocrat whose fate takes a curious turn when his nursemaid secures him an apprenticeship as a pirate instead of a pilot. With such famous tunes as "I am a Pirate King" and "(I am the Very Model of) A Modern Major General," The Pirates of Penzance will have viewers lagging hardily as they sing along with this delightfully rollicking tale.

As someone who has not seen "Pirates" before, I found this version to be fun and playful. I enjoyed the music and I also enjoyed the fact that the cast, especially the Pirate King, play to the audience as well as the orchestra. The big negative I have is the audio towards the end was not very good and I had trouble hearing and understanding the words.
