Havant Light Opera: Iolanthe

Iolanthe is a satirical fantasy which targets the peerage system as well as aspects of the British government, law and society. Although written in 1882, it is in many ways still relevant today! Characters include an exiled fairy (banished for marrying a human), her love-struck son (half fairy down to the waist), a virtuous Ward of Court (equally love-struck), a forceful Fairy Queen and a pompous Lord Chancellor, a dim-witted band of peers and an assortment of clever fairies. With a melodious score and clever dialogue, Iolanthe will charm and delight audiences of all ages.

Performances will be at 7.30pm on Wednesday 28 June, Thursday 29 June and Friday 30 June, and at 2.30pm and 7.30pm on Saturday 1 July.

Tickets £10 (under 18s: £5) from The Spring.
