New York Gilbert & Sullivan Players "H.M.S. Pinafore"

Thursday, 05/04/2017 8:00 PM

Sail the shining waters as the H.M.S. Pinafore embarks on a journey of humor and mischief in Gilbert & Sullivan’s famous comic operetta about finding love on the high seas. The levity of musical theater meets the extravagance of opera in a satirical musical production that lovingly pokes fun at rigid Victorian class distinctions. Romantic sailors, sisters, cousins, and aunts sing and dance across this fanciful British naval vessel. Love finds its way aboard as the captain's daughter falls for an ordinary sailor, despite her father’s plan for a more refined suitor. First performed in London in 1878, this classic has delighted audiences on both sides of the Atlantic for more than 130 years. The playful score includes many popular tunes such as “I’m called Little Buttercup,” “I am the Monarch of the Sea,” “We Sail the Ocean Blue,” and the rousing full ensemble anthem “For He Is an Englishman.” Hailed by New York magazine as “the leading custodian of the [Gilbert & Sullivan] classics,” the New York Gilbert & Sullivan Players brings energetic singing, live orchestration, dynamic choreography, and an elaborate set based on Gilbert’s own drawings. Join us for hijinks on the high seas in the grand style of Gilbert & Sullivan! Attachments

Book Talk - Author Charlene Giannetti

Join us for a free book talk with Author Charlene C. Giannetti on her book "The Plantations of Virginia" at 1:30 p.m. About the Book: Southern plantations are an endless source of fascination. That's no surprise since these palatial homes are rich in history, representing a pivotal time in U.S. history that truly is "gone with the wind." With the Civil War literally exploding all around, many of these homes were occupied either by Confederate or Union troops. Nowhere else I the south were plantations so affected by the nation's bloodiest war than in Virginia. At times, families fled, leaving behind slaves to manage the property. There are still more than 60 plantations in Virginia today, most of them open to the public. Some have been restored, others undergoing the process. If only walls could talk, the stories we might hear! Attachments
