Opera Holland Park, Stable Yard, Holland Park, London, W8 6LU

Your father is a captain and the Admiral of the Fleet wants to marry you. So how do you tell them that a mere able seaman has captured your heart? A flagship of Gilbert and Sullivan’s fleet of comic operas, HMS Pinafore is a tangled tale of love that cheekily defies the social and naval hierarchy.
