Pirates of Penzance

Coming in May 2023, Wellington Comic Opera brings Pirates of Penzance back with a vengeance…

Get ready to be raided – corporate raided.

Our pirates are dressed for the office and ready to stage an aggressive takeover for your assets. In this new adaptation of Pirates from Director Alison Hodge, our pirates have more refined tastes (though the legality is still so-so). Hold onto your wallets and join us in a journey to (dubious) morality.

Tickets will be available from Eventfinda six weeks before the first performance.
