DULOG presents... HMS Pinafore
Monday 5th - Friday 9th November
Durham University Light Opera Group (DULOG) returns to the stage with a dazzling performance of Gilbert and Sullivan’s HMS Pinafore, the raucous comic opera that became an international sensation. Set on board the British sailing ship HMS Pinafore, this charming tale follows the complexities of love in an era where social standing and convention is everything. Yet Gilbert and Sullivan’s inspired opera, peppered with silliness and gaiety, strives to encapsulate the age-old adage that love does indeed conquer all.
With musical numbers including “I’m Called Little Buttercup”, “I am the Captain of the Pinafore” and “We Sail the Ocean Blue”, HMS Pinafore promises to combine the visually stunning with the vocally scintillating, offering a production with romance, satire and frolics aplenty, all in the historic and beautiful setting of Durham’s Town Hall.
Performances run from 5th-9th November (no show on the 8th), with shows starting at 7.30pm. Tickets are £8 (£7 concessions / £6.50 DST) and can be bought online at: http://www.dur.ac.uk/dst/show.php?show=967
