The Pepperdine University Flora L. Thornton Opera Program will present the comic opera The Pirates of Penzance at Smothers Theatre on the Malibu campus from Wednesday, February 21, to Saturday, February 24, at 7:30 PM.

The Pirates of Penzance unveils the story of the Pirate King and his apprentice Frederic as they match wits with the Major General and his beautiful daughters.

“It is a great joy, in my 25th and final year as director of Pepperdine’s Flora Thornton Opera Program, to present Gilbert and Sullivan’s entertainment juggernaut, The Pirates of Penzance,” shares Pepperdine music professor Henry Price. “Two magnificent casts will be swashbuckling their way into your hearts.”

The Orange Cast will perform on Wednesday and Friday, and the Blue Cast will perform on Thursday and Saturday. Visiting music professor Tony Cason will conduct the Pepperdine University Orchestra.

Admission tickets are $20. For additional information about this event, and to purchase tickets, visit the Center for the Arts website.
