The Pirates of Penzance

The Pirates of Penzance

Opera on Tap Portland presents The Pirates of Penzance, an adaptation of the classic Gilbert & Sullivan show for kids! Join us as Frederic, Mabel, Edith, and Sam help tell the story of how Mabel and Frederic met and fell in love. 

Opera on Tap Portland is our local chapter of a nationwide, not for profit, and has been bringing opera to bars and pubs since 2015. Our professionally trained singers perform regularly at McMenamins Kennedy School, as well as other venues around town. Learning to sing opera takes years of practice and performance to perfect. Our singers have earned advanced degrees in singing, and spend countless hours working on their craft. They bring opera and art song to life, expressing the depths of human experience and speaking to our emotions in a visceral way unlike any other. We think this is pretty cool. We think audiences of all ages will think so too! Our mission is bring opera to where people like to hang out - bars, pubs, and small theaters. 

The show will feature several of our accomplished roster singers and our beloved maestro, Evan C. Paul. The script has been modified from its original 19th century English into a version tailored for kids' enjoyment. Gilbert & Sullivan's music is timeless, light, and humorous. Perfect for kids and the young at heart.

Opera on Tap Portland is a chapter of Opera on Tap. We are a non-profit 501(c)3. All donations are tax-deductible.

The location that serves as one of McMenamins favorite neighborhood theater pubs was the locus of great spiritual zeal beginning in the 1890s. That's when the Swedish Evangelical Mission established its church here....

From a church to a theater-pub, the Mission's history ain't exactly saintly. Click here for more info!
