Gilbert and Sullivan are the undisputed masters of comic operetta and the proud parents of the modern musical. That their works are more in demand today than when they were created over a century ago is ample proof of their lasting brilliance. When Frederic, the hero of THE PIRATES OF PENZANCE, was but a boy, his father instructed his nurse to have him apprentice as a pilot. She thought he said 'pirate' and thus the zany troubles began.
