Operetta Iolanthe

May 4 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


The Caroline L. Guarini Department of Music, Dance, and Theatre presents the operetta “Iolanthe” with words by W.S. Gilbert and music by Arthur Sullivan. Performances will take place on Saturday, May 4 at 7:00 pm and Sunday, May 5 at 3:00 pm in Rossey Hall, Room 105. Directed by Dr. Robert Prowse, the cast includes current music majors and NJCU alumni, accompanied by orchestra.

“Iolanthe”, sung in English, is a comic tale of Fairies and Nobles vying for power in Victorian England. The story centers around Iolanthe, a fairy, who has been banished for marrying a mortal, her son Strephon, who is half fairy and half mortal, his fiancée Phyllis, and her guardian, the Lord Chancellor of England. As in all Gilbert and Sullivan operas, there are lots of absurd situations and plot twists and, of course, a happy ending.
