SUMMARY

In 1879, Harvard astronomers rewrote Gilbert and Sullivan’s Pinafore. In 1929 they performed it. In 2012, its unique blend of songs, science, skirts, and satire will live again.

The Observatory Pinafore captures a past world where computers were women and staying up all night was more a matter of business than of pleasure.

What happens when a sinister group of men from a rival institution plot to steal away Harvard’s star star observer? Travel back in time to meet squabbling scientists, malfunctioning instruments, and terrible rhyming couplets in this reworking of a classic operetta.

Fans of G&S as well as of physics will find much to enjoy in this quirky introduction to the history of astronomy.
