The Master’s College will present its first full-length opera through the Music Department’s Opera Workshop program on Friday and Saturday, Jan. 23-24. Performances of Gilbert and Sullivan’s “H.M.S. Pinafore” will run at 7:30 p.m. in the Music Recital Hall.
The famous comic operetta tells the story of Josephine, the captain’s daughter aboard the H.M.S. Pinafore. She is in love with a lower-class sailor, Ralph Rackstraw, although her father intends for her to marry Sir Joseph Porter, the First Lord of the Admiralty. When Sir Joseph arrives with an entourage of sisters, cousins, and aunts, comedy ensues, and the characters learn that things aren’t always as they seem.
TMC’s production is conducted by Dr. Kimberlyn Jones, professor of vocal studies and opera, conducted by TMC alumnus Taylor Arnone and produced by TMC alumnus Robert Brady. This is the first year that the student production will be accompanied by a small live pit orchestra.
