Operas and musicals have long provided an escape from the day-to-day and also, perhaps, from troubling times. Live theatre transports us to another time and place and that's exactly what Knoxville Opera's production of The Pirates of Penzance will do this weekend. Gilbert & Sullivan's music pleases the ear, while the hilariously entertaining story will tickle the funny bone. Performances are Friday, October 21st at 7:30 and Sunday, October 23rd at 2:30 and, as always, will be given in the magnificent Tennessee Theatre.
In this interview, Melony Dodson chats with baritone, Sean Anderson, who is singing the role of the Pirate King, and soprano, Claire Coolen, who is portraying Mabel.
