David Hamilton talks with stage director Eric Gibson and cast members Peter Johnson (The Pirate King) and Melissa Parks (Ruth) from their new production of the Gilbert and Sullivan operetta, "The Pirates of Penzance".  There are some musical excerpts, too.  FM Opera describes the production thus.  "Renowned for songs such as "I am a Pirate King!", "Poor Wandring One" & "I am the Very Model of a Modern Major-General," this rollicking comic opera shifts from the high seas to the world of high finance with dashing James Bond inspired pirates, bumbling police officers, dim-witted young lovers, & a martini-swilling Major-General straight out of the TV series "Mad Men"!"
