MAY 1, 2019 - PRINCESS IDA, GILBERT AND SULLIVAN OPERA
Princess Ida is having nothing to do with men, never mind love and marriage. She is so firm in her belief that she has locked herself away in a University attended only by women and that is exactly where she plans to stay. She was betrothed to young Prince Hilarion from a very young age and her failure to arrive to meet him with her father, King Gama,could be interpreted as an act of war, but still, she is having none of it. She is willing to fight the men who show up on her doorstep if need be. Her fellow chaste and heretofore uninterested female friends, on the other hand, find themselves face to face with Cupid and less keen to do battle. Princess Ida is brimming with those qualities we love in the works of Gilbert and Sullivan; humor, sweeping and intelligent lyrics, witty commentary, danger and commotion. In the end, love wins the day, and for more than just the royal couple.
