Synopsis


1930s London.


Two schools - one for boys and one for girls - come together to put on Gilbert and Sullivan's great battle of the sexes: Princess Ida.


Masters, pupils and janitors alike, they're here to tell the story of Ida, the woman who dared to set up her own college, and Hilarion, the prince who dared to love her.


First performed in 1884, this classic operetta was originally based on Alfred Lord Tennyson's 1847 poem, The Princess.


Though one of the lesser-known works of the Gilbert and Sullivan canon, the show is also one of the most highly regarded for its score.


Sullivan's talent is arguably at its peak in Princess Ida, with its melodies by turns energetic, moving, and memorably witty.


Grosvenor Light Opera Company is one of London's leading amateur operatic societies and has staged over 70 productions of Gilbert and Sullivan's operas.
