The bride agrees to be blindfolded during the ceremony and expects to be a well-paid widow within the hour.

IOLANTHE G & S OPERA COMPANY

Show is starting at...15 August 2014 to 26 August 2014

Harrogate Royal Hall

Iolanthe is a delightful operetta about a fairy banished from Fairyland for life for marrying a mortal. Gilbert’s incisive witty political satire is as relevant today as it was when Iolanthe was first performed in 1882 and many consider the Iolanthe music among the best of Sullivan’s work. In this "fairy opera", the House of Lords is lampooned as a bastion of the ineffective, privileged and dim-witted. The political party system and other institutions also come in for a dose of satire. This sparkling new production is simply a joy.
