The Pirates of Penzance

Categories: [ TV/Cinema ]



Frederic is an apprentice pirate in 1871, but when he turns 21 he decides to leave the crew and lead a honest life. He disembarks with his nursemaid Ruth, meets young maidens, daughters of a major-general, and falls in love with one of them, Mabel. The pirates arrive soon after and want to marry all the maidens, but the major-general lies to them about being an orphan, and, being all orphans themselves, let him and his daughters go free. But later on, the major-general regrets having lied to the pirates, and Frederic announces he has engaged the constabulary to help him defeat the pirates; the policeman however are cowards. During the night, the pirate captain and Ruth arrive and tell Frederic that his contract was until his 21st birthday, and since he's born on February 29th, he has got only five of them. In the morning, the pirates return and are chased by the policemen into the town, where they fight in the theatre. The sergeant of police convince them to surrender in the name of Queen Victoria. Ruth reveals that the pirates are all noblemen who have gone wrong, the major-general invites them to resume their position in the House of Lords, and agrees to let them marry his daughters.
