Melbourne Opera is bringing Gilbert and Sullivan (G&S) hilarity back to Melbourne, with a new production of H.M.S. Pinafore.

One of the most celebrated comic operas of all time, H.M.S. Pinafore is being staged due to public demand.

The production will star charismatic comedian, entertainer and opera singer David Gould as Sir Joseph Porter (acclaimed for his brilliant performances as Don Basilio in The Barber of Seville and Njegus in The Merry Widow) and internationally renowned singer Claire Lyon (The Phantom of the Opera World Tour), who will make her Melbourne Opera debut in the lead role of Josephine.

Since its premiere in 1878, Gilbert and Sullivan’s wildly popular H.M.S. Pinafore has continuously delighted audiences with a tale of star-crossed lovers on the seven seas. Global G&S aficionado Robert Ray is directing Melbourne Opera’s new production.

The tale of H.M.S. Pinafore begins with Captain Corcoran of the good ship H.M.S. Pinafore whose daughter, Josephine, is in love with a lowly but gallant sailor Ralph Rackstraw. The Captain forbids the match and intends her to marry the well-bred Sir Joseph Porter, First Lord of the Admiralty but finds himself in a similar position when his former nanny, Little Buttercup, falls in love with him before, as in many of the G&S operas, a surprise disclosure changes things dramatically.
