Gilbert and Sullivan Opera Sydney - Iolanthe
1 October


The Art House Theatre, Wyong

Presented by Gilbert and Sullivan Opera Sydney
Gilbert & Sullivan at their best!

Ended on Sunday, 1 October 2023

Are love and equality a path to peace - or to the breakdown of law and order? Could they even lead to both?!

IOLANTHE is Gilbert & Sullivan at their awesome, uproarious best!

When the eternally young fairy Iolanthe falls in love with a mortal, not even her friendship with the Fairy Queen can prevent her banishment for breaking fairy law.
Her secret, half-fairy son Strephon fights against identity, class, politics and the law itself to be with his love Phyllis - an effort made harder by her legal guardian and wannabe suitor, the Lord Chancellor, who has been in a downhill spiral ever since the disappearance of his beloved Iolanthe.

Against a backdrop of amorous Lords and flirty Fae, and with farcical Fate lurking around the corner, a fairytale for modern times takes shape!

IOLANTHE - with just a touch of Ludwig van Beethoven and William Shakespeare - will be performed by the 30-strong cast of Gilbert & Sullivan Opera Sydney with palm court orchestra.

If you loved The Pirates of Penzance, you'll absolutely adore IOLANTHE.
