Christopher Alden’s Olivier Award-winning production – with designs inspired by the Surrealist imagery of Man Ray – returns for its first revival.
A swashbuckling farce of brilliant humour and razor-sharp wit, Gilbert and Sullivan's The Pirates of Penzance makes for the perfect night out.

Based on the screenplay by Luis Buñuel and Luis Alcoriza. Sung in English with surtitles.
