Gilbert & Sullivan's Iolanthe
Directed by Alan Paul
Music Directed by Joseph Sorge
Gilbert had taken pot shots at the aristocracy before, but in this “fairy opera,” the House of Lords is lampooned as a bastion of the ineffective, privileged and dim-witted. The political party system and other institutions also come in for a dose of satire. Yet, both author and composer managed to couch the criticism among such bouncy, amiable absurdities that all is received as good fun.
