We are rehearsing hard to bring Aberdeen the breathtaking production of Gilbert & Sullivan's 'Iolanthe', coming to the Tivoli Theatre from 27-29th February 2020.
"Twenty-five years ago, the fairy Iolanthe married a mortal – a capital offence under fairy law. However, her sentence was commuted from death to lifetime banishment on condition that she leave her husband and never see him again … but not before she manages to have a son, Strephon, who is half mortal and half fairy. Now grown up, Strephon is a shepherd and has fallen in love with Phyllis, a shepherdess.
Gilbert & Sullivan’s hilarious operetta Iolanthe is a satirical fantasy. Phyllis and Strephon 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." (English National Opera)
We want 'Iolanthe' to look as breathtaking as it sounds so in order for us to do that, we need your help. This is a great way for you to support the show and Aberdeen's Gilbert & Sullivan Society, especially if you are unable to attend any of our performances.
Any donations would be greatly appreciated and we are thankful for your support.
