Blu-Ray pressing. Lock up your daughters, the pirates are coming to town! Peppered with unforgettable melodies and tongue-twisting songs, The Pirates Of Penzance is one of the most popular operettas ever written. Opera Australia's new production is an effervescent smash hit. In spite of being apprenticed to a Pirate King as a child, Frederic has led a very sheltered life. So, when he arrives in Penzance with his boisterous shipmates, there are a few surprises in store for him! It all ends happily, but not before he's dodged the Old Bill, fallen in love and made some rather inconvenient discoveries.Notes & Reviews:
