One of Gilbert and Sullivan's most popular operettas has been wonderfully adapted and arranged here for a classroom cantata by M.J. Arnold.
This musical is full of the same lively and colourful characters, including the pirates of course! but has been carefully edited and condensed for young performers. There are two action packed acts with 16 favourite solos and choruses with dialogue and suggestions for performance.
This arrangement of Pirates works very well for schools. One or two of the numbers are a little on the low side and need transposing up a tone, and it is a little short so we have put back some numbers that have been taken out.
Orchestral parts would be a useful addition. Anonym
