Iolanthe (London, London Coliseum, 2023) | Playbill




In Gilbert and Sullivan's 1882 operetta, the fairy Iolanthe, who was banished from Fairyland for marrying a mortal, is pardoned by her Queen. Upon learning that Iolanthe's son, Strephon, is in love with Phyllis, a ward in chancery, the fairies pledge their aid to Strephon in obtaining the Lord Chancellor's consent to be married. When the Lord Chancellor recklessly insults the Fairy Queen, a battle ensues between the Fairies and the House of Lords, with Strephon and Phyllis caught in the center.
