Iolanthe in Concert
A concert performance of Gilbert and Sullivan's evergreen political satire - the fairy opera.
Jorvik Gilbert and Sullivan Company
Saturday 21 April 2018
Jorvik Gilbert & Sullivan Company return to Joseph Rowntree Theatre with this concert performance of Iolanthe.
Iolanthe pits the shepherd Strephon against the House of Lords as they compete for the hand of Phyllis, a ward in Chancery. Unknown to them though Strephon has an advantage - he is half-fairy and the Fairy Queen is prepared to make life miserable for the peers in order to come to his aid.
Well known songs include Loudly Let the Trumpet Bray (the Peers' Chorus) and the Lord Chancellor's Nightmare Song in this light- hearted take on political satire - that may still have relevance today.
