IOLANTHE

By W.S Gilbert & Arthur Sullivan

Directed by Nick Wuehrmann
William LaRue Jones, conductor

The zany world of Gilbert & Sullivan is back with the enchanting tale of Iolanthe, the fairy who fell in love with a mortal. Twenty five years after her exhile, the Fairy Queen let Iolanthe return, bringing a mingling of the fairy world and the fallible mortal world of the House of Lords. The mix of comic and romantic stories, with Sullivan’s sublime music, is classic Gilbert and Sullivan: a whimsical and romantic yet sharp–toothed political satire that promises to delight audiences young and old.
