Iolanthe, the seventh of the Savoy Operas,  is a topsy-turvy love story about fairies and members of the House of Lords - a political fairy tale that only Gilbert & Sullivan could conceive and containing some of their most famous music including The March of the Peers and Private Willis’s When All night Long. Gilbert at his satirical best and not to be missed!!  Directed by Cav. Vivian Coates and conducted by James Hendry (ROH).
