On behalf of the Rathmines & Rathgar Musical Society, 1welcome you to the National Concert Hail and our Society’s presentation of Gilbert & Sullivan’s The Pirates of Penzance. ‘Pirates’ is the third of the popular operas created by those two geniuses, W. S. Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan. Indeed, it was due in no small way to the persuasiveness of the impresario, Richard D’Oyly Carte, that they wrote ten more of these delightful works. In December 1879, ‘Pirates’ was premiered by two D’Oyly Carte companies, one in New York and one in London in order to secure the copyright both in the GSA and in England. 1 am pleased - and happily surprised - that there has been a revival in recent years in the popularity of the Gilbert & Sullivan operas. In fact, last year there were two D’Oyly Carte companies ‘on the road’ - which has not happened since 1927. The R & R, now in its 89th year, has presented ‘Pirates’ on many occasions, this being the Society’s 10th production. I hope you will enjoy this performance.

T^^irates of Penzance The Pirates o f Penzance was successfully premiered to great acclaim in New York in 1879. It had its official â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;first nightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; in 1880 in the Opera Cornique in London. The R&R last staged the ever-popular Pirates of Penzance in 1995. It was also produced by the Society in the NCH in 1984. The Pirates of Penzance is a tale of pirates and maidens meeting on a quiet Cornish shore (the maidens Firstly being terrified but later changing their opinions!). Act 1: Ruth, Maid-of-all-work to the pirates, tells them that Frederic, their leader is now 21 years old and is free to leave piracy forever. But they want him to stay with them! Ruth remains very concerned and worried, as it was her who mistakenly apprenticed Frederic - in his early days - to a Pirate instead of a Pilotl The father of the maidens - the eccentric Major General - saves his daughters from the apparently scheming pirates by telling them that he is an orphan - therefore claiming special treatment for the pirates! So the future looks good and Mabel and Frederic are free to marry. Act 2: Is predominated by the Policemen! Their many hilarious activities accompanied by their range of songs! There is a furious battle between the Policemen and the Pirates. Ruth, however provides another solution and... All ends well! PN
