The Maltings Theatre & Rocket Opera present:

Berwick Festival Opera: Iolanthe

Berwick Festival Opera's 2016 season launches with a magical follow up to the sell-out success of last year's Mikado.

A tangled web of a comic opera satirising the upper echelons of the British establishment, Iolanthe revels in all the hallmark wit and musical dexterity you'd expect from Gilbert and Sullivan at the height of their combined powers.

Fluttering from Fairyland to the House of Lords, Iolanthe offers just as much of a sature of establishment politics - but with fairy lights... So suspend your disbelief, put reality on hold and let yourself be transported to a world where fairies really do exist, ageless and lovely. Follow the romantic trials and tribulations of Strephon, as he woos and wins the mortal Phyllis - but not without a struggle that forces him to make his case to the highest legal power in the land, The Lord Chancellor. Who just so happens to be Phyllis's guardian.
