Iolanthe by William S. Gilbert (libretto) and Arthur Sullivan (music)

Love and politics cross paths in a most unlikely way in Gilbert and Sullivan's popular comic operetta. Twenty-five years ago, the fairy Iolanthe was exiled for marrying a mortal. Unbeknownst to the rest of her kind, Iolanthe bore a son, Strephon, before her banishment. Now a young shepherd, Strephon falls madly in love with Phyllis, a ward of the Court of Chancery. But the entire House of Lords also wants Phyllis, and a chaotic struggle ensues between the fairies and Britain's men of power.

Iolanthe ran March 26-28 and April 2-5 at 7:30 p.m. in the Mainstage Theater.
