H.M.S. Pinafore, or The Lass that Loved a Sailor is a comic opera in two acts, with music by Arthur Sullivan and libretto by W.S. Gilbert. It is one of the savoy operas. H.M.S. Pinafore was Gilbert and Sullivan’s fourth operatic collaboration. The much anticipated premiere of H.M.S. Pinafore took place at the Opera Comique in London on May 25, 1878 with a cast that included George Grossmith (Sir Joseph), Rutland Barrington (Captain Corcoran), George Power (Ralph), Richard Temple (Dick Deadeye), Emma Howson (Josephine), and Miss Everard (Little Buttercup). This production turned out to be Gilbert and Sullivan’s first smash hit and enjoyed a run of 571 performances.
