The Gilbert and Sullivan Archive   The Pirates of Penzance

From The Era (London, England), Saturday, September 16, 1882; Issue 2295.

GAIETY THEATRE. — Mr. M. Gunn, Proprietor; Mr. M. J. Doyle, General Manager. — Mr. D'Oyly Carte's Pirates of Penzance company are still the attraction here, and are drawing good houses.

Mr. John Child made his first appearance on Saturday as Frederic. He is possessed of a sweet, full, and melodious tenor voice, and his acting is easy and graceful.

Mr. G. W. Marnock, as the Pirate King, does justice to his part. Mr. G. F. Marler's Sergeant of Police is quite up to the mark.

Miss Esmé Lee's Mabel is all that could be desired. Miss Armytage's vigorous acting and fine voice produce a Ruth in every way satisfactory.

The choruses are well sung. Mr. W. Robinson conducts with much ability.
