Charles Court Opera

Iolanthe

Buxton Opera Housebutton--dates-and-timesDates & Times

The "masters of G&S in small spaces" and Off West End award-winning Charles Court Opera, present their enchanting - and timely - production of Gilbert & Sullivan's sharp satire of power, privilege and parliamentary democracy.

This witty and magical operetta tells a tale of forbidden love causing an absurdist fusion of two worlds - the magical fairies of Fairyland and a bamboozled House of Peers. Featuring some of Sullivan's most stunning music, including 'Oh foolish fay', 'If you go in, you're sure to win' and what is popularly known as 'The Nightmare Song,' brought to life by Musical Director David Eaton, audiences can expect an evening of first class entertainment and riotous fun suitable for all ages. 

Accompanied by the National Festival Orchestra, conducted by David Eaton.

“From the opening explosion of energy this is a show that knows where it's heading, and that's to five-star heaven.”
