Prepare for pandemonium with this brand new Gilbert and Sullivan production of Iolanthe from Opera Anywhere! This ingeniously witty and magical operetta is a tale of forbidden love between fairies and mortals – peers of the House of Lords, no less!
Strephon is the half-fairy, half-mortal son of the fairy Iolanthe and has fallen in love with Phyllis, a ward of the court. But for them to marry, Phyllis needs the Lord Chancellor’s permission, which is going to be tricky as he hopes to marry her himself – as do half the house of Lords!
It’s Gilbert & Sullivan at their satirical best poking fun at power, privilege and parliamentary democracy.
