  • "Gilbert set the first act of the opera off the rocky coast of Cornwall, where a band of good-natured and inefficient pirates are celebrating the relea se from his indentures of their young apprentice, Frederic (REX SMITH). Frederic, however, shocks them by his revelation that he intends leaving them to lead an honest life, since he became a pirate in the first place only by accident. As a little lad his father had instructed his nursery maid, Ruth (PATRICIA ROUTLEDGE) -- now the pirates' cook and washerwoman -- to apprentice him to a pilot. But Ruth, being hard of hearing, had misinterpreted her instructions and apprenticed him instead to a pirate. Frederic, a slave of duty, has served out his indentur es faithfully, but he is now resolved to become an honest man and urges the pira tes to do the same. But they refuse, agreeing with their leader that "it is a gl orious thing to be a pirate king" (KEVIN KLINE). On his way back to civilization, Frederic falls in with a chorus of pretty young ladies who turn out to be the daughters of Major-General Stanley. With one of these girls, Mabel (LINDA RONSTA DT), Frederic is much taken. Suddenly, the pirates swoop down upon the girls, wh o are saved only by the intervention of their father, who introduces himself as "the very model of a modern Major-General" (GEORGE ROSE). To escape from the pir ates' clutches, the Major-General pretends to be an orphan, which so excites the ir pity that they let him and his daughters go. Frederic, however, is not let of f so lightly, for it appears that he was born in a leap year on February 29 and consequently -- his indentures providing him an apprenticeship until his 21st bi rthday -- he has many years yet to serve. So, true to his ideal of duty, Frederi c returns to the pirate band, now under threat of attack from a peculiarly hesit ant posse of constables whose sergeant (TONY AZITO), echoed by his lugubrious me n, laments the "policeman's lot is not a happy one." In the ensuing fight, the r eluctant policemen are defeated by the pirates, who, however, immediately succum b at the police sergeant's demands "We charge you yield, in Queen Victoria's nam e!" "We yield at once, with humbled mien," the pirate king cries" "Because, with all our faults, we love our Queen." The police, overcome with emotion, prepare to lead the pirates ..."@en
