Iolanthe by Gilbert & Sullivan

Iolanthe by Gilbert & Sullivan is being staged by Alton Operatic and Dramatic Society - an updated production brought into the 21st century

It's been 25 years since Iolanthe was convicted of the crime of marrying a mortal and things are finally looking up as she's been pardoned by the Fairy Queen just in time to celebrate her son Strephon's wedding to Phyllis. Unfortunately, the plan goes astray as Strephon overlooks the need to obtain wedding permission from Phyllis' guardian and meddling politicians convince Phyllis that Strephon is cheating on her with Iolanthe. As cover ups and misunderstandings evolve, Strephon is catapulted into Parliament through the meddling of his fairy aunts. Can he win Phyllis back through Politics? Magic? Or the innocence of True Love?

Performances start at 7.30pm with a matinee on Saturday at 2.30pm.
