Join the Reverend Arthur Bender of St Michael’s under-Ware as he auditions his cast for the fastest, zziest and funniest production of The Pirates of Penzance you will ever see. A cast of just six perform Gilbert & Sullivan’s classic comic opera - complete and unabridged (with cuts). You will be dazzled by the singing, choreography and sheer panache of it all.

“It is an evening of brilliance, done with verve, style, great voices, and a hefty quotient of camp.”
George Hall OPERA NOW

This is the show that launched Opera della Luna as the country’s craziest and cleverest exponents of comic opera and operetta.

Stowe House is one of Britain’s finest eighteenth century houses. It is an architectural masterpiece on an immense and palatial scale which has inspired, and contains the work of, a number of leading eighteenth-century designers - notably Sir John Vanbrugh, Robert Adam, James Gibbs, William Kent and Sir John Soane. It sits in magnificent parkland now owned by the National Trust. With over 40 historic temples and monuments, each with their own story, its gardens incorporate history, nature and beauty in majestic surroundings.

The beautiful nearby grounds will be open for picnics 2 hours before the performance.
