Pre-show + Post-show Talks

At 6:30 pm, join opera scholar Leah Field and other guests for an engaging overview of the work of Gilbert and Sullivan and HMS Pinafore.  Join us after the performance for a post-show talk with a wide variety of cast and crew from HMS Pinafore as they share stories from the rehearsal hall and beyond. Audience members will have a chance to ask questions too. Both the pre-show and post-show talks are 25 minutes long and are included with your opera ticket. All are welcome to attend. 

Digital House Program

In efforts to reduce waste, a digital house program is available for all ticket holders. If a printed program is required, please visit the marketing table in the lobby where we will have a very limited number of printed programs available. Read the HMS Pinafore Program here.
