Iolanthe by Gilbert & Sullivan
Charles Court Opera
Thurs 20 Aug 8pm
Marking 10 years of Charles Court Opera the ★★★★ ‘Wickedly funny’ (The Guardian) company return to Hever with an enchanting – and timely – production of Gilbert & Sullivan’s sharp satire of power, privilege and parliamentary democracy. Directed by John Savournin, this witty and magical operetta tells a tale of forbidden love, causing an absurdist fusion of two worlds – the magical fairies of Fairyland and a bamboozled House of Peers. With some of Sullivan’s most stunning music brought to life by Musical Director David Eaton, Iolanthe promises to be an evening of first-class entertainment and riotous fun.
