Congratulations to Robert Murray
and Jonathan Lemalu
for their success at the English National Opera last Saturday night in Gilbert and Sullivan’s The Pirates of Penzance
. Robert plays the young (or, paradoxically, very young…) Frederic torn by his sense of duty and Jonathan plays the Sergeant of Police who finds his lot far from happy. Soraya Mafi
joins them in the role of Edith, bringing a treasure of [her] own especial pleasure to the part!
This much anticipated production by internationally acclaimed director Mike Leigh is in performance until 4 July 2015, and will appear in a live broadcast in cinemas on 19 May.
