Opera lovers will remember Opera Anywhere’s much acclaimed performances of Gilbert and Sullivan’s The Pirates of Penzance and The Mikado in 2019 and 2021. They are returning to Long Wittenham to perform Gilbert and Sullivan’s HMS Pinafore at St Mary’s Church at 7:30pm on Saturday 12th November.
The show will be presented by the The Friends of St Mary’s, in aid of the church.
Opera Anywhere is renowned for performing unique versions of operas, old and new, in unusual and interesting locations. It tours throughout the UK, the main objective being to entertain audiences with popular but also less well-known operas.
HMS Pinafore is a tale of mismatched love across different social classes. Josephine is the captain’s daughter and has fallen for lowly sailor Ralph. Her father has other ideas: he has promised her to Sir Joseph Porter, the First Lord of the Admiralty. Will love prevail? Climb aboard to find out and enjoy a feast of fun along the way. Hip hip hooray!
Tickets are £20 for adults and £10 for under 18s, and are available on the Opera Anywhere website or call 03336 663366. They are also available from Dom Jarman on 01865 407416.
