Princess Ida runs a women-only university dedicated to anti-male propaganda. Prince Hilarion (betrothed to Ida in infancy) and two male friends break into the university and disguise themselves as girls in an attempt to win her back.



When Hilarion’s father decides to launch a full-scale attack the lady undergraduates are ordered to “man” the barricades. This is Gilbert and Sullivan at the height of their powers. Not to be missed!

BWW Reviews: PRINCESS IDA Produced by Gilbert and Sullivan Society of Austin is Hysterical and Current
by Jeff Davis - Jun 16, 2013

There's certainly a reason why the works of Gilbert and Sullivan have remained a fixture in popular culture for nearly 150 years. Their operas are fun, frivolous, and tinted with social and political satire. Though Princess Ida, their eighth operatic collaboration, may not be as well-known as some of their other works such as The Pirates of Penzance, H.M.S. Pinifore, or The Mikado, it is just as silly, entertaining, and smart, as the current production by The Gilbert and Sullivan Society of Austin wonderfully illustrates. (more...)

BWW Reviews: Lamplighters' PRINCESS IDA Offers Best of Gilbert and Sullivan
by Harmony Wheeler - Jan 28, 2013

Promised in marriage at the early age of one, Princess Ida lectures that woman must first place her feet upon man's neck. Only then, man conquered, may she treat him better than he treated womankind. By the end of Gilbert and Sullivan's comic operetta named after the mighty maiden, this may seem the only solution for her betrothed, who wishes to win her love. One can already see the dashing Prince Hilarion stooping to offer his head when he and two friends dress in women's clothing and sneak into Ida's all-female university. (more...)
