News   HMS Pinafore Set to Return to London's Savoy in Dec.

The D'Oyly Carte Opera Company have already staged three Gilbert and Sullivan shows at the Savoy Theatre this year: Iolanthe, The Yeomen of the Guard and (still playing) The Mikado.

Now they are making it a quartet with HMS Pinafore, which will return to the Savoy (it was last staged there in 2000) Dec. 13, opening on Dec. 18 and running to March 1, 2003.

HMS Pinafore, which sends up the Victorian Royal Navy, is one of Gilbert and Sullivan's best-loved shows, and, like The Pirate of Penzance, enjoys a nautical flavor that always gives shows a little extra zest.
