Performed at The Palm Beach Opera (Kravis Center), April 2017


The 2017 Palm Beach Opera season came to a delightful close in April with a sparkling production of Gilbert and Sullivan’s perennial favorite, The Pirates of Penzance…Stage Director Alan Paul created a production in which every dated reference seemed current.
— Karl Hesser, Opera News
A crisp, swift, funny, well-sung and well-played reading of The Pirates of Penzance
— Greg Stepanic, Palm Beach Arts Paper
An engaging, entertaining show
— Robert Croan, Palm Beach Daily News
There was not a dull moment in this high-gloss production….Palm Beach Opera’s Pirates of Penzance is great entertainment, a lively reinvention of a classic filled with joy and wit.
