You will receive an overview of Gilbert & Sullivan's "The Pirates of Penzance" and Utah Opera's May production of the work. The class is held in the Utah Opera Production Studios so that interested Osher students can sit in for a while in the afternoon's staging rehearsal. The class is intended as an excellent way to prepare for attending one of the evening performances of the opera. Opera plot: Frederic, an apprentice indentured to the world's most trusting band of pirates, is celebrating his 21st birthday and searching for love when he encounters the Major General's group of daughters. Hilarity ensues as the Major General plots to keep his daughters from the pirates, and the Pirate King makes plans to keep Frederic in his band.
