Jan. 4-5: H.M.S. Pinafore by First Coast Opera

n this nautical satire, the Captain’s daughter has captured the attentions of two men: a lowly sailor Ralph Rackstraw and the pompous Sir Joseph Porter. Only the mysterious Little Buttercup can unravel the ensuing mess of class rivalries and mistaken identities. Infectious tunes and clever wit make this G&S comedy at its best!
