Directed by Wilford Leach, the recording featured most of the 1981 Broadway revival cast — including Kevin Kline, Linda Ronstadt, George Rose and Rex Smith — with the addition of Angela Lansbury.

"A pirate king and his men meet a major general's daughters in this version of the Gilbert and Sullivan operetta," according to press notes.

The recording was filmed at the Shepperton Studios in England. Pirates of Penzance was released to pay television on Feb. 17, 1983, the same day that it went into theatrical release.

The 1981 revival of Pirates of Penzance received six Tony nominations, winning awards for Kevin Kline, director Wilford Leach and the Tony for Best Reproduction (Play or Musical).
