What is a visit to Sydney without taking in a show at the Opera House. There are several theatres in the Opera House, but I figured it would be best to see the Opera Theatre. One of the current productions is Gilbert and Sullivan’s operetta, The Pirates of Penzance. Now I guess when a Disney franchise like Pirates of the Caribbean takes in a billion dollars or two or more, there is bound to be some influence on other types of productions. The actor who played The Pirate King channeled his inner Johnny Depp, but also created a delightful character that was very much his own. Never having seen this before, I can’t compare it to past production. And given there are over 100 years worth, there are plenty to which to compare. But it was certainly an enjoyable evening and worth having gone.
