Iolanthe

Gilbert & Sullivan's Iolanthe is a brilliantly satirical comedy about peers of the realm, that also takes a pop at Queen Victoria, Lord Randolph Churchill and William Gladstone. It also boasts one of their most melodious scores.

Phyllis and Strephon both wish to get married, but Phyllis is a ward of court needs to get permission from the Lord Chancellor first. The Lord Chancellor, however, wants her all for himself.

Matched by Sullivan’s ever-melodious score, Gilbert not only targets peers of the realm, but also offers thinly disguised portraits of Queen Victoria, John Brown (her personal servant and ‘close companion’), Lord Randolph Churchill (reformist Tory) and William Gladstone (Liberal PM of the day).

The cast will include mezzo-soprano Artist Samantha Price and Andrew Shore.
