Storyline

Strephon, a shepherd (the son of a Fairy, Iolanthe, and a mortal), is in love with Phyllis, a shepherdess. He wants to marry her, but, although Phyllis also loves Strephon, she has a dilemma - she is so beautiful that all of the House of Lords, as well as her guardian, the Lord Chancellor, are also desirous of marrying her. There are many complications - including the peers being threatened by the Fairies - before a happy conclusion is reached by all. Written by David McAnally <D.McAnally@uq.net.au>

Okay, but not good
15 April 2003 | by ZoldanfamilySee all my reviews

As a fullblown Gilbert and Sullivan Fan, I found this version of the opera rather strange. The cast was good, Kate Flowers (Phyliss) and Anne Collins as the Fariy Queen were standouts. The effect were really bad though, And I just don't like Good old Derrik in the part of the LC. The sets were imagentetive, but weird.
