In this very special Jubilee season at BGSOS, we’re delighted to launch our 50th annual production with the winning combination of Director, John Telfer; Musical Director, Eric Wetherell and Designer, James Helps.

John Telfer, with his intuitive style and vast experience, ensures yet another cleverly witty interpretation of a typically whimsical G&S plot. Musically, Eric Wetherell’s esteemed leadership and attention to accuracy are inspirational and his reduced orchestration delivers a full sound, illustrating Sullivan’s work in every detail. All of this is brought to life by Designer, James Helps who has been given a blank canvas and once again creates a magical backdrop. 

Iolanthe is a tale of passion and sacrifice, involving the most unlikely array of characters and settings: fairies meeting up with aristocrats, peers & politicians in an enchanted forest is a pretty incredible storyline, even by G&S standards!

For existing Gilbert & Sullivan followers, this production promises not to disappoint, and for those new to G&S, there’s no better place to start!
