A COLLECTIVE of North Walian Gilbert and Sullivan enthusiast will bring a trio of powerhouse performances to Eglwysbach, Llandudno and Llandudno Junction this week.

The Rhos-on-Sea Savoyards a will revive the Victorian collaborative comic opera Iolanthe, or, The Peer and the Peri to Aberconwy Hall on Thursday, June 6, the memorial Hall on Friday 7 and the Trinity Centre on Tuesday 11 at 7.30pm.

Taking their name from ‘Savoy’ style theatre, the art form perfected by dramatist WS Gilbert and the composer Arthur Sullivan.

In the operetta, the fairy Iolanthe has been banished from fairyland because she married a mortal while her son, Strephon, is an Arcadian shepherd who wants to marry Phyllis, a Ward of Chancery.

All the members of the House of Peers also want to marry Phyllis, and when Phyllis sees Strephon hugging a young woman - not knowing that it is his mother - she assumes the worst and sets off a climactic confrontation between the peers and the fairies.

First performed in 1882, the work’s themes are still apt theses days with a satirical bite that skewers many aspects of British government, law and society.

Tickets to catch this timeless operetta are £7 for adults and £3 for children, available on the door.
