The fairy Iolanthe, banished 25 years ago for marrying a Peer of the Parliament, is back in town along with her son Strephon. He’s half fairy, half mortal, and totally in love - as is the Lord Chancellor and every other Peer...with the very same girl! It’s certainly not politics as usual, as the affairs of state in fairyland take center stage, the tasty tunes take wing and hilarity takes the day.
