HOUGHTON -- The Rozsa Center welcomes the New York Gilbert and Sullivan Players as they present H.M.S. Pinafore, at the Rozsa Center at 7:30 p.m. TONIGHT, Wednesday, March 19. Don’t miss the intrigue on the high seas and romance among very different classes in this charming, fully staged production, where according to The New York Times, "broad comedy and stylish singing carry the day."
As their first international hit, this seaworthy satire put the wind in Gilbert and Sullivan's sails. It opened in London in 1878, and within a year more than 150 unauthorized productions cropped up across the United States. Catch a faithful new full production -- complete with live touring orchestra and full sets -- by the New York Gilbert and Sullivan Players.
Now in its fourth decade of operation, New York Gilbert and Sullivan Players (NYGASP) is America’s preeminent professional Gilbert and Sullivan repertory ensemble. Under the dynamic leadership of Artistic Director Albert Bergeret, who has been hailed as "the leading custodian of the G and S classics" by New York Magazine, NYGASP has created its own special niche in the cultural mosaic of New York City and the nation.
