It is one of the best G&S productions I have ever seen, and I have seen LOTS! Another great performance was The Mikado in Portland, Ore, during the state centennial calibration, before they made movies of stage productions. Other shows I recall were done by the S.F. G&S Society, award winning group! their Iolanthe and Ruddigore were memorable!! But Mr Bolton playing the Pirate King as Jack Sparrow, wonderful!!!

This is a top-notch performance of the opera. The actors are extremely talented and the singing is phenomenal. This is not a "stuffy" opera. Get ready to laugh uproariously when you watch this one!
