About the Show

The Pirates of Penzance – Update

Brussels Light Opera Company will be performing The Pirates of Penzance at the De Bosuil Cultural Centre, Overijse, on 19th-22nd May 2022, and also at the International Gilbert and Sullivan Festival in Harrogate (UK) on 15th August 2022.

Stage Directors will be Angela and Tony Lowe, with Lionel Bams as Music Director, and Barbara Bauer and Alex Just as Producers.

There is still time to join us. We are able to take on board additional chorus members, and plan to hold more auditions in October 2021. For further information, please contact blocpirates2021@gmail.com.

Our normal rehearsal venue is the De Kam Cultural Centre (172 Beekstraat, 1970 Wezembeek-Oppem), where we meet on Monday evenings (principals), Tuesday evenings (chorus and principals), and Sunday afternoons when the show gets nearer. We plan to start rehearsals (Covid permitting) at our rehearsal venue as from December 2021.

The Pirates of Penzance is one of the most popular of the Gilbert & Sullivan comic operas, and is full of catchy tunes, uplifting choruses and heart-warming melodies. A tale of tender-hearted pirates, feisty females, bumbling British policemen, true love – and lots of silliness – The Pirates of Penzance is opera at its most comical!

Keep your eye on the BLOC website for more details of our May 2022 production of The Pirates of Penzance!

"Pour, oh pour, the pirate sherry" ... but stay safe!!
