Gilbert and Sullivan’s cheeky and charming operetta abounds with pirates, maidens, and a Major General with the true gift of gab. Young Frederic, instantly smitten by the lovely Mabel but beholden to a Pirate King, and beleaguered by the Major General, must fulfill his sense of duty while staying true to his love.

Mozart’s final composition — the Requiem — is a work of surpassing eloquence, beauty and power.  Mozart’s Requiem is also one of the most popular of all choral works, with an intriguing history to add mystery to the music: Mozart, already a sick man, had illusions that he was writing the Requiem for himself!  
Join us in spring 2018 to explore this masterpiece.

ALL tickets purchased in advance will be available at the WILL CALL window.
