H.M.S. Pinafore

H.M.S. Pinafore

Music by W. Gilbert, and A. Sullivan

“A delicate balance of comedy and sentimentality.”


All Aboard!

After more than a year of being cooped up, join us for a first-class cruise for all classes—at economy prices—and a certifiable international sensation.

Gilbert and Sullivan’s first major hit, this classic lampoon of snobbery, intolerance, inept leadership, and more will shiver your timbers—and help you rediscover the joy, and healing power, of laughing with others!

In English with English supertitles.
