Storyline

Princess Ida and Prince Hilarion were betrothed when the Prince was two years old and the Princess just one year old. Twenty years have now passed, and the time has come for Hilarion to claim his bride. The Princess, however, has other ideas. She has set up a women's-only University - and men are not allowed. Hilarion and his friends, Cyril and Florian, disguise themselves as women to gain entrance to the University. All goes well until Cyril's unmaidenly conduct compromises their disguise - and reveals the three friends as intruding men. Written by David McAnally <D.McAnally@uq.net.au>

A delightful production!
11 December 1999 | by (Brisbane, Queensland, Australia) – See all my reviews

Guests at a mansion give a private performance of 'Princess Ida', with the audience being made up of their fellow guests. When King Gama comments that Princess Ida has set up a Women-only University (where even the animals are all female), her betrothed, Prince Hilarion, decides there is only one thing to be done - he and his friends will have to infiltrate the University, so that he can woo the Princess and claim her as his wife. To achieve this aim, the three friends dress up as women in some academic robes they find - and their subsequent behaviour, as 'women', is a delight to watch. The singing is great, as is the acting - and the sets and costumes are beautiful and colorful. A delightful production!
