Iolanthe (2016)

Iolanthe, or The Peer and the Peri, opened at the Savoy Theatre on November 25, 1882 and ran for 398 performances. Gilbert had taken pot shots at the aristocracy before, but in this "fairy opera," the House of Lords is lampooned as a bastion of the ineffective, privileged and dim-witted.

 

Iolanthe is the 7th work of Gilbert and Sullivan, and many believe it to be their most perfect collaboration, including some of the finest examples of Sullivan's music.

Our production featured choruses of sparkly fairies and supercilious nobles alongside the excellent MADS orchestra. The pastoral comic opera played January 29, 30, 31 and February 4, 5, 6, 7, 2016.
