HMS Pinafore tickets

Gilbert and Sullivan’s sea-faring comedy

Gilbert and Sullivan’s comic opera HMS Pinafore returns to the London Coliseum for a farcical look at the British class system, with Les Dennis starring as Sir Joseph Porter.

When Captain Corcoran’s daughter Josephine falls for sailor Ralph Rackstraw, she finds herself torn between the pull of her heart and her family’s wishes. As her father pushes for her to marry the First Lord of the Admiralty, Sir Joseph Porter, the opera flies through absurd plot twists, ridiculous characters and an unbeatable comedic ending.

Casting includes actor and entertainer Les Dennis, in his opera debut as Sir Joseph Porter, John Savournin as Captain Corcoran, and ENO Harewood Artists Elgan Llŷr Thomas and Alexandra Oomens as Ralph and Josephine.

Cal McCrystal returns to the London Coliseum to direct, having previously helmed a hit staging of Gilbert and Sullivan’s Iolanthe. Chris Hopkins, a frequent collaborator of the English National Opera, conducts.

Set sail at the London Coliseum from 29 October 2021 with HMS Pinafore tickets. This tale of love, honour and duty will sweep audiences into an unforgettable sea-faring adventure that’s as sharp as it is hilarious.

Performance dates: 10 Dec 2021 - 11 Dec 2021

Running time: 2 hours 10 minutes

Age recommendation: Suitable for all ages.

Not entirely my thing but it was a last minute booking and a fun way to spend the afternoon. The double-rotating set design is a masterpiece (and from this seat I I think you have a better view of it than someone down in the stalls). I have been here twice now and the place does have a nice atmosphere about it. Bravo for having a screen with the words on it!

Spirited performances, great fun, and beautifully mounted, with clever use of the strage revolves. A bit too much 'comedy business' for this reviewer, and Les Dennis wasn't up to the role, but overall, a grand day out.

The set was brilliant and all the performers were very good. It was difficult to hear some of the time when the actors were speaking rather than singing. There is some up to date humour running through the show which may be lost on some.
