OPERA ANYWHERE returns to Simonsbath 2019 with 'THE PIRATES OF PENZANCE'.  'Pirates' is one of the most famous of Gilbert & Sullivan's operettas and introduced the much-parodied "Major-General's Song". The opera was performed for over a century by the D'Oyly Carte Opera Company in Britain and by many other opera and repertory companies worldwide.  Pirates remains popular today, taking its place along with The Mikado and H.M.S. Pinafore as one of the most well-loved Gilbert and Sullivan operas. Those coming to this performance may be interested in widening their their Gilbert & Sullivan experience by attending the preceeding Friday (14th) screening of the film 'Topsy Turvey' which about the working relationship between Gilbert and Sullivan. 

Wine, Tea, Coffee and Ice Cream. A pre- ordered light supper is available during the interval (see booking form).
