Notes and Editorial Reviews

Gilbert and Sullivan's raucous operatic tale is captured in all it's fun and glory in this production, recorded live at Central Park's Delacorte Theater. Kevin Kline (Big Chill, A Fish Called Wanda)sparkles as the swashbuckling and libidinous Pirate King while Linda Ronstadt makes her theatrical debut as the lovely and virginal Mabel. When Mabel and Frederic (Rex Smith) - a young pirate bound to serve the Pirate King - fall in love, complications arise and high-spirited antics ensue. The incomparable cast offers the best in this boisterous romp. Also starring Patricia Routledge (Keeping Up Appearances) and George Rose as "the very model of a modern major-general."
