Brides of Tortuga - Baltimore Rock Opera Society

  • Chesapeake Arts Center 194 Hammonds Lane Brooklyn Park, MD, 21225 United States (map)

When your life is burned to the ground and you are handed a sword, do you take it? Would you sail towards certain death to pursue what is right?

The Baltimore Rock Opera Society is proud to present our final show of 2016: Brides of Tortuga! This raucous, rebellious rock and roll musical begins in 1661 in Calais, France, and crosses the wild & dangerous open Atlantic Ocean and comes to a bloody close in the Caribbean Sea. The show follows Charlotte, a French freedom fighter who must figure out how to captain an unblooded crew and escape the French Navy who are hot on their tails, and Mary, a humble barmaid who gets swept up in the adventure.

Brides of Tortuga features a large cast, epic sets, intensive fight choreography, a stirring vocal ensemble, and live rock band buttressed by strings, horns and a strong percussion section. The show is a powerful statement about rage, self-determination and kicking ass on a boat.


Brides of Tortuga is the 8th original production written and produced by the Baltimore Rock Opera Society. BROS is excited to premier this show at the insanely tricked out Chesapeake Arts Center in Brooklyn Park, MD.
