Texas State Opera Theatre


Pinafore image


Our saucy ship’s a beauty…


Aboard the gallant ship H.M.S. Pinafore, Ralph Rackstraw loves the captain's daughter Josephine, but stormy seas lie ahead, as she is promised to the Lord of the Admiralty. Will the star-crossed lovers navigate the rough waters before them?


The show includes such familiar songs as “I’m Called Little Buttercup,” “When I Was a Lad,” and “I am the Captain of the Pinafore.” Gilbert and Sullivan’s skills at satire, comedy and beauty are on full display in what continues to be the one of the best-loved and longest-running operettas. Get ready to laugh out loud, and leave the theater humming this memorable score!
