ENO Presents lolanthe

March 27 @ 6:00 pm - 10:15 pm

 

We’ve been invited to a behind-the-scenes tour of the London Coliseum, the home of the English National Opera (ENO), followed by a champagne and canape reception hosted by its CEO, Cressida Pollock.

The best part is the viewing of Gilbert & Sullivan’s hilarious operetta lolanthe. A satirical fantasy. Phyllis and Strephon wish to marry, but as Phyllis is a ward of court she requires the Lord Chancellor’s permission. The Lord Chancellor, however, wants her for himself.

Featuring a melodious score and brilliant wit, Iolanthe not only targets peers of the realm and the British system of government but also offers thinly disguised portraits of Queen Victoria and William Gladstone (Liberal PM of the day).

This event is invitation only.
