The witty and rollicking tale of a young man apprenticed to a band of pirates too kindhearted for their own good, The Pirates of Penzance, or The Slave of Duty remains one of Gilbert and Sullivans most beloved and frequently revived works. This newly engraved performing edition is based on Sullivan's autograph, contemporary copyists' scores, and both the first and second editions of the vocal score. It corrects numerous errors that have crept in over the years and is the first edition to offer performers the choice of using either the 1880 or 1908 versions of the Act II finale. Aficionados will be particularly delighted with the first accurate full score of the "Climbing over Rocky Mountain" section, which incorporates music from the legendary lost Gilbert and Sullivan operetta Thespis.

Gilbert set the first act of the opera off the rocky coast of Cornwall, where a band of good-natured and inefficient pirates are celebrating the relea se from his indentures of their young apprentice, Frederic (REX SMITH). Frederic, however, shocks them by his revelation that he intends leaving them to lead an honest life, since he became a pirate in the first place only by accident. As a little lad his father had instructed his nursery maid, Ruth (PATRICIA ROUTLEDGE) -- now the pirates' cook and washerwoman -- to apprentice him to a pilot. But Ruth, being hard of hearing, had misinterpreted her instructions and apprenticed him instead to a pirate. Frederic, a slave of duty, has served out his indentur es faithfully, but he is now resolved to become an honest man and urges the pira tes to do the same. But they refuse, agreeing with their leader that "it is a gl orious thing to be a pirate king" (KEVIN KLINE). On his way back to civilization, Frederic falls in with a chorus of pretty young ladies who turn out to be the daughters of Major-General Stanley. With one of these girls, Mabel (LINDA RONSTA DT), Frederic is much taken. Suddenly, the pirates swoop down upon the girls, wh o are saved only by the intervention of their father, who introduces himself as "the very model of a modern Major-General" (GEORGE ROSE). To escape from the pir ates' clutches, the Major-General pretends to be an orphan, which so excites the ir pity that they let him and his daughters go. Frederic, however, is not let of f so lightly, for it appears that he was born in a leap year on February 29 and consequently -- his indentures providing him an apprenticeship until his 21st bi rthday -- he has many years yet to serve. So, true to his ideal of duty, Frederi c returns to the pirate band, now under threat of attack from a peculiarly hesit ant posse of constables whose sergeant (TONY AZITO), echoed by his lugubrious me n, laments the "policeman's lot is not a happy one." In the ensuing fight, the r eluctant policemen are defeated by the pirates, who, however, immediately succum b at the police sergeant's demands "We charge you yield, in Queen Victoria's nam e!" "We yield at once, with humbled mien," the pirate king cries" "Because, with all our faults, we love our Queen." The police, overcome with emotion, prepare to lead the pirates

"The comic operas of Gilbert and Sullivan are a performing arts phenomenon. Wildly popular when first produced, they are if anything even more popular today. The Savoy Operas are available on records and compact discs, on audio and video tapes, on television, film, and radio, as well as through the more traditional medium of stage performances by both amateur and professional companies. Indeed, the works of Gilbert and Sullivan are produced more frequently than the plays of Rodgers and Hammerstein or any other musical partnership. The Complete Annotated Gilbert & Sullivan provides the complete text of all thirteen Gilbert and Sullivan operas still performed today, from Trial by Jury and The Sorcerer to Utopia Unlimited and The Grand Duke, and including all their greatest triumphs--H.M.S. Pinafore, The Pirates of Penzance, and The Mikado. No other book provides such extensive commentary on the texts of the Savoy Operas. Each work is thoroughly annotated, with the text, including stage directions, given on the right-hand page, and the notes on the left (keyed by line numbers). The annotations provide a wealth of information--everything from the identity of real-life people mentioned in the opera, to clear explanations of obscure words and phrases (such as legal terms) and other literary references, to comments from first-night critics, and much more. In addition, Bradley has written a marvelously informative introduction to the book as well as superb introductions to each piece, describing the genesis of the work, its performance history, and other fascinating tidbits (for instance, Sullivan wrote the music for H.M.S. Pinafore while wracked with pain from a kidney stone, and he wrote the score of The Pirates of Penzance while living at 45 East 20th Street, in New York City). A goldmine of information on the most popular light operas in the repertoire, The Complete Annotated Gilbert & Sullivan will delight the hearts of Savoyards everywhere."--Publisher's description

"A lighthearted burlesque of Japanese culture and the vagaries of love, and one of the most widely admired of all the Gilbert and Sullivan operettas. The sparkling lyrics and witty dialogue of this comic masterpiece are as much a delight to read as they are to hear with musical accompaniment. The complete libretto is reprinted in this edition from the standard performance text of The Mikado, complete with nine charming illustrations drawn by W. S. Gilbert himself."--from the publisher
