Gilbert & Sullivan's wicked and delightful 'fairy opera', Iolanthe, a biting satire on the House of Lords in a fully staged performance with orchestra. When the peers of the realm collide with the court of the fairies, it sets off a tale of plots schemed, secrets unravelled and love unrequited. With Gilbert's razor sharp lyrics and Sullivan's timeless tunes, it packs a punch both with its wit and with its surprising tenderness as it deals with love in the centre of legalistic lunacy."
