Lamplighters Presents Re-Imagined IOLANTHE

Lamplighters Music Theatre was founded in 1952 to produce the comic operas of librettist W.S. Gilbert and composer Arthur Sullivan.

Lamplighters Presents Re-Imagined IOLANTHE

Lamplighters opens its 70th Anniversary Season with their first post-pandemic complete production, including chorus, leads and orchestra, in IOLANTHE, or, The Peer and the Peri.

Gilbert & Sullivan's subversive political satire on how a government SHOULD be run, Lamplighters' new production of IOLANTHE juxtaposes the idyllic woodland world of Arcadia in Act 1 against the London of WW2 in Act 2. Conducted by David Drummond, Nicolas Aliaga Garcia directs, with updates that infuse this grand classic of comedy and glorious music with delight for both new and long- time audiences.
