Shiver me timbers!! It's The Pirates of Penzance at The FeckenOdeon!

Correspondent 9th Aug, 2019

AHOY there! A show guaranteed to lift the spirits and get the toes tapping is coming to Feckenham’s village cinema, The FeckenOdeon.

Presented by one of Britain’s finest opera companies. English National Opera’s production of The Pirates of Penzance will be relayed live from the stage of the London Coliseum – and locals can enjoy the best seat in the house for a fraction of the cost and without having to travel to the capital!

Gilbert and Sullivan’s comic opera is packed full of sentimental pirates, a blundering policeman, absurd adventures and improbable paradoxes.

Frederic, a pirate’s apprentice, falls head-over-heels in love with Mabel, the daughter of Major-General Stanley.

Frederic is due to be released from his apprenticeship on his 21st birthday, but there’s a snag.

Born on February 29, Frederic discovers that he is technically still a youngster.

Although very much in love, his dedication to duty is unshakeable.

Can he find a way to live happily-ever-after with Mabel?

This Opera Encore performance is directed by film director Mike Leigh and features the principals, Orchestra and Chorus of English National Opera.

Presented in HD it’s in full Surround Sound.

The show is on Saturday, August 17 and tickets are £10 on sale at The Village Shop and The Rose & Crown or book online through feckenodeon.co.uk or by phone on 0333 666 3366.

There will be a bubbly reception from 6.30pm, ticket prices include canapes and a first glass of fizz, and it’s curtain up at 7.30pm.

The FeckenOdeon Cinema is on Feckenham High Street.
