WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Considered by many to be Gilbert & Sullivan's finest work, Iolanthe tells the story of Strephon, a young shepherd who happens to be the son of a fairy mother and a mortal father, leaving him half a fairy...down to the waist, but his legs are mortal. When Strephon falls in love with the beautiful Phyllis, ward of the Lord Chancellor of England, the House of Peers -- who are to a man madly in love with Phyllis -- object strenuously, setting up a confrontation between the power of the Peers and that of the Fairy Queen and her mystical band. Featuring witty dialogue, clever lyrics and beautiful music, Iolanthe includes such memorable Gilbert & Sullivan favorites as "If You Go In," "None Shall Part Us From Each Other," "When All Night Long a Chap Remains," "In Friendship's Name" and the Lord Chancellor's famous, tongue-twisting "Nightmare Song." Its brilliant blend of comedy, romance and drama makes it a natural for musical-theater fans of all ages. This is a fully-staged production, featuring a cast of over 25, full scenery and costumes, and the 17-piece Gilbert & Sullivan Light Opera Orchestra, under the capable baton of Music Director Sara Holliday.
