GSOV Iolanthe
Presented by GSOV - Gilbert & Sullivan Opera Victoria

A spellbinding musical fantasy, Iolanthe is Gilbert & Sullivan at their sublime and satirical best. Don’t miss this fable of fairies versus mortals. Beloved and beautiful, immortal Iolanthe has broken one of her fairy kingdom’s biggest rules – she fell in love with a human and was banished for marrying a mortal. Now twenty-five years later, these two worlds will collide as her son, Strephon (half fairy from the waist up, and mortal from the waist down), has rapturous plans to wed pretty Phyllis, a sweet voiced shepherdess and ward of the Lord Chancellor. Unfortunately, Strephon has a lot of competition from just about every peer in the House of Lords, including the Lord Chancellor himself! With class complications, mistaken identities, and not a little bit of supernatural shenanigans, will true love be enough to win out when party political lines are drawn?
