A beautiful maiden falls in love with a shepherd boy and wishes to marry him. Her Guardian, the Lord Chancellor of the House of Lords, refuses to permit it, for he wishes for her to marry a Peer of the House.
But this tale is just beginning… for the shepherd boy is Strephon, half fairy/half mortal son of the Fairy Iolanthe, a friend of the Fairy Queen.
It’s NOT a good idea to anger the Fairy Queen! Fairies and Shepherds, Politicians and Soldiers, and a musical Masterpiece that delights one and all!
Join us on opening night (October 9), and you’ll also be invited to join us for a special post-performance reception!
The Pittsburgh Savoyards will present Gilbert & Sullivan’s Iolanthe or, The Peer and the Peri
