Book Description 2017. Paperback. Condition: New. 42 ABOUT THE BOOK:- It is a comic opera in two acts, with music by Arthur Sullivan and text by W.S. Gilbert. The story concerns Frederic who, having completed his 21st year, is released from his apprenticeship to a band of tender-hearted pirates. He meets Mabel, the daughter of Major-General Stanley, and the two young people fall instantly in love. Frederic soon learns however, that he was born on the 29th of February, and so, technically, he has a birthday only once each leap year. His Indenture specifies that he remain apprenticed to the pirates until his "twenty-first birthday", meaning that he must serve for another 63 years. Bound by his own sense of duty, Fredericís only solace is that Mabel agrees to wait for him faithfully. Meanwhile the pirates have planned their revenge on the Major- General and are now coming to rob his estate. The sergeant and his police force await them. They meet. All matter resolved after the ensuing battle. ABOUT THE AUTHOR:- W.S. Gilbert (1836-1911) was an English dramatist, librettist, poet and illustrator best known for the fourteen Comic Operas.
