Genre: Ballet
Choreographed by Francis Patrelle

GILBERT & SULLIVAN, The Ballet! is a fun-filled revue of three favorite comic operas: The Pirates of Penzance, The Mikado and H.M.S. Pinafore.  Francis Patrelle’s choreography highlights the joys, trials and rewards of a life in the theater: Sir William Gilbert and Sir Arthur Sullivan battle over casting, bond over music, and get ripped off by their producer as a marvelous cast of dancers, singers, and musicians bring these operas to life.
