Durham Opera Ensemble: Iolanthe

Sat 22 Jun - Sun 23 Jun

Durham Opera Ensemble perform Gilbert and Sullivan’s classic comic opera, Iolanthe in Leech Hall, St John’s College.

Years after being banished from fairyland for marrying a mortal, Iolanthe is visited by her sisters who miss her. Meanwhile, Iolanthe’s half-fairy, half-human son Strephon seeks to marry the Lord Chancellor’s ward, Phyllis. Upon their marriage being rejected by the peers, the fairies reap revenge by magically making Strephon an MP with the ability to pass any bill. Chaos ensues!
