HOT (Hawaii Opera Theater) visited our school with a performance based on the comic opera: The Pirates of Penzance. This piece of art is about the story of young Frederick as he leaves his pirate apprenticeship behind in favor of new adventures. Along the way we meet a slew of colorful characters, including the sly Pirate King, the quick talking Major General Stanley and his spunky daughter Mabel.
Kids practiced a sing-along prior to the show, and when the time came they sang a chorus with the performers. Who would imagine MSOS students would be singing opera so well?
