Gilbert & Sullivan’s The Pirates of Penzance, or The Slave of Duty,  features a merry band of pirates and their young apprentice, Frederic. Having at last come of age, Frederic is ready to renounce piracy and give his heart to Mabel, the Major General’s daughter. But to his dismay, he discovers that he was born in a leap year and won’t reach his true 21st birthday for another 63 years. What’s to be done? Can Mabel wait that long?! One of Gilbert & Sullivan’s most iconic operettas has the answers, along with some of the pair’s most beloved songs.
