The opera's official premiere was at the Fifth Avenue Theatre in New York City on 31 December , where the show was well received by both audiences and critics. The story concerns Frederic, who, having completed his 21st year, is released from his apprenticeship to a band of tender-hearted pirates. He meets the daughters of Major-General Stanley, including Mabel, 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. Pirates was the fifth Gilbert and Sullivan collaboration and introduced the much-parodied " Major-General's Song ".

Poor Wandering One lyrics
It's waltz time. A first-rate piece that features the most elegant of all musical styles. Poor Wandering One features a solo clarinet with the whole band getting involved in the rapture of the waltz. The story hinges on the fact that when Frederic was a little lad his parents instructed Ruth, his nursery-maid, to apprentice him as a seafaring pilot. Being slightly hard of hearing, Ruth unfortunately mis-heard the instruction. When Frederic became 21 he was eligible to become a fully-fledged pirate, but to general consternation declares he will devote his live to piracy's extermination. Soon, on meeting a group of sisters on their way to the beach Frederic implores them to join him in his attempt to rescue himself from his dilemma and is over-joyed when Mabel, in spite of her sisters' misgivings, responds sympathetically - influenced perhaps by Frederic's attractive good Looks - singing beguiling waltz, Poor Wandering One and going even further by encouraging him to 'Take heart fair days will shine, hake any heart, take mine'.
