On Aug. 24 and 25, the troupe Opera Comique will perform Gilbert and Sullivan's classic "HMS Pinafore" onboard the Mystic Seaport's full-rigged ship, the Joseph Conrad.
The opera tells the tale of Josephine, the daughter of Captain Corcoran of the Royal Navy, who is due to be betrothed to the first lord of the admiralty. Josephine, however, is in love with Ralph Rackstraw, an able seaman under her father's command.
Shows begin at 7 p.m. Tickets are $45 per person and can be purchased at mysticseaport.org. Proceeds from ticket sales will benefit the Charles W. Morgan restoration.
