The Home of Gilbert & Sullivan


Iolanthe is a topsy-turvy worldview, typical of Gilbert & Sullivan, in which life in the fairy world and Parliament is reversed. Phyllis and Strephon (half man, half-fairy) wish to marry, but as Phyllis is a ward of court, she requires the Lord Chancellor’s permission. The Lord Chancellor, however, wants her for himself.

See Iolanthe at the London Coliseum from  5 – 25 October 2023.
