ROS stages futuristic Gilbert & Sullivan classic

ROS stages futuristic Gilbert & Sullivan classic

Rehearsals are well underway for Richmond Operatic Society's production of the Gilbert & Sullivan classic HMS Pinafore which will be staged at the Theatre from Tuesday 21 to Saturday 25 May.

The difference is this version will be set on a spaceship 500 years in the future.

The production tells a comedic tale of love, honour and duty. Josephine, the committed daughter of the Starship’s Commander, Captain Corcoran, falls for lowly Specialist 2nd Class, Ralph Rackstraw.

However, her emotional turmoil is fuelled by her true love for Ralph, set against obeying her father, whose greatest desire seems to be his arrangement of a marriage to the venerable High Counsel of the fleet, Joseph Porter.

This tale of unrequited love is one amongst many aboard this vessel as it thunders through Space, throwing up many mysteries and hilarious encounters, to keep an audience enthralled.
