The subtitle of this operetta says it all: "The Slave to Duty". Poor Frederick, bound to serve as apprentice to the pirates until his 21st birthday, was born on the 29th of February, so his duty will force him to wait until 84 years have passed to be a free man. This means Mabel will have to wait another 63 years to marry him. Or will she?
