The Pirates of Penzance first opened in 1879 and was written by W.S. Gilbert with music by Arthur Sullivan. This comic opera tells the tale of Frederic, who is the apprentice to a group of sentimental pirates. When he turns 21, he leaves his indenture to join respectable society. He soon meets and falls in love with Mabel, the youngest daughter of Major-General Stanley. He promises the General that he will apprehend the band of pirates but soon finds out that, due to a technicality of being born on February 29 in leap year, he is still apprenticed to the pirates until his 21st birthday.
