London Coliseum, London

Sorry, this show is not currently booking.

Mike Leigh’s production of Gilbert and Sullivan’s The Pirates of Penzance at the London Coliseum.

Sentimental pirates, blundering policeman, absurd adventures and improbable paradoxes – this much-loved comic opera brims with humour, razor-sharp wit and features a sparkling score chock-full of memorable melodies and catchy tunes.

In the first revival of this smash-hit production from renowned filmmaker Mike Leigh, ENO favourite Andrew Shore returns to sing the role of the army general alongside John Tomlinson as the Sergeant of Police. ENO Harewood Artists David Webb and Soraya Mafi sing the roles of the young lovers, Frederic and Mabel, and Gareth Jones conducts.

Gilbert and Sullivan’s The Pirates of Penzance runs from 9 February 2017 until 25 March 2017 at the London Coliseum.


The cast includes Andrew Shore, John Tomlinson, David Webb and Soraya Mafi.


Conducted by Gareth Jones, directed by Mike Leigh, with design by Alison Chitty, lighting design by Paul Pyant and choreography by Francesca Jaynes.


★★★★ ‘A jolly good show’ Daily Telegraph
★★★★★ ‘Pricelessly funny…an entirely delightful evening’ The Stage
