Gilbert & Sullivan's Iolanthe

Gilbert & Sullivan's Iolanthe

Queens music, design, and communications programs collaborate to present Gilbert and Sullivan's Iolanthe.

Saturday, November 12, 7:30pm

Sunday, November 13, 3:00 and 7:30pm

When Victorian fairies descend on the corrupt politicians of the English Parliament, madness, love, and hilarity result. Meant as an allegory for the rise of the women's suffrage movement, Gilbert’s ruthless political satire and surprisingly modern feminist ideals combine with Sullivan’s beautiful music to create magic worthy of fairies!

The Queens production will be directed by Alistair Donkin, award-winning director and former member of the D’Oyly Carte Opera Company, the original theatrical company that staged Gilbert & Sullivan operas dating back to the 1870s. It is musically directed by Dr. Justin Smith, with sets designed by Professor Michael O’Neill.

Free tickets are available for student, civic, religious, and other groups. For more information, please reach out to Dr. Justin Smith at smithj11@queens.edu.
