Musical Direction by David Manifold
Iolanthe is a brilliantly funny, satirical fantasy revealing a typically Gilbert & Sullivan topsy-turvy worldview. Based on W.S. Gilbert's Bab Ballad 'The Fairy Curate', Iolanthe is set 25 years after fairy Iolanthe committed the ultimate crime: marrying a mortal. Pardoned for her crime she begs the Fairy Queen to help her half-human, half-fairy son Strephon to marry his beloved Phyllis.
Unfortunately the scheming Lord Chancellor wants Phyllis for himself, so naturally the fairies invade Parliament so the boy can win the girl (and have a lot of fun with a few peers).
