    I really enjoy the site and pick up lots of ideas for my own quizzes. Regarding question 11, I think your typing finger might have slipped, The Pirates of Penzance received its first performance in New York at the end of 1879 with a UK debut in Paignton. The London premiere was in 1880.

    Thank you for your work

    Regards
