  • March 02, 2020 The Pirates of Penzance

    Among the most-recognized of the Gilbert and Sullivan operettas, this edition of "Pirates" provides a good piano reduction of Sullivan's wonderful music and the entire script, helping you to enjoy Gilbert's topsy-turvey view of things. AND it provides you with a history of "Pirates," good information...

    on the librettist and the composer, and, because it is a book with a rugged spine, it should provide you with an excellent medium for you to enjoy "Pirates" whenever you wish.If you don't read music, there is a complete recording on YouTube. Except for dumping one verse from a second act song (apparently for time, since it was originally a vinyl recording), it's the real thing, as this edition of "The Pirates of Penzance" shows.

  • April 26, 2008 This "Pirates" is the best yet

    This has been the most complete score to date that I have ever encountered. It had songs that were not included in any other versions I have used. The students were delighted as was I

  • August 17, 2007 Used for community theater performance

    We bought one copy of this book for each of our principle players, the directors, accompanists, and stage manager. Because these volumes are soft-bound, we had several of the copies trimmed and spiral-bound at a local printer. That was especially helpful for directors and accompanists. The printing is...

    large and clear, which made it easy to use.

    We are an amateur theatre company in Melbourne, Australia. This score contains all the dialogue and a complete Piano/vocal score... well set out, and easy to read.
