Princess Ida

Will Princess Ida be wooed by cross-dressing Prince Hilarion, or will his love end in tragedy?

Jorvik Gilbert and Sullivan Company

Thursday 20 September to Saturday 22 September 2018

Jorvik Gilbert & Sullivan Company return to the Joseph Rowntree Theatre for the 10th year with a performance of Princess Ida - a satire on the battle of the sexes.

The opera is loosely based on Tennyson's poem The Princess and sees the headstrong Princess Ida defy her arranged marriage and retire to a women's university.

Prince Hilarion, betrothed to her in infancy, sets out to win her heart by infiltrating her college with two trusted friends disguised as female students.

The opera features some of Sullivan's most enchanting music alongside quarrelsome kings, bumbling soldiers, cross-dressing courtiers and a fearsome army of female students.

Music Night marks several notable anniversaries to celebrate in song under the leadership of Musical Director Don Pears.

A wide range of popular song covering 120 years of birthdays, debuts, anniversaries and other events, all performed by talented singers and musicians from the York musical theatre scene.

Is it really 50 years since Judi Dench took to the stage as Sally Bowles in the UK premiere of Cabaret and Ron Moody starred as Fagin in the movie version of Oliver!?
