Me, DD, Twisted Sister, Bro J, Mrs J and their daughter went to see
Iolanthe yesterday. Afterwards BS and nephew A2 joined us for dinner.
We had a wonderful day, thank you Bro J for arranging it.

Iolanthe is about a half man half fairy who becomes an MP........

Tantantara zing boom! How was it? Was it a trad performance? Really must get to the Buxton Festival this year, haven't seen a G&S; in donkey's years...

So many years since I last saw a G&S; too. It was great fun, yes very traditional and lovely costumes. The fairy queen was definitely the star for me.

Ah, Maria Ewing. The one star of the series who's famous for her voice. Never heard her go lower than mezzo - did "Iolanthe! From Thy Dark Exile Thou Art Summoned" sound higher than normal, or did she really go for it? I've heard versions that tended towards the subsonic...
Are you at all tempted by Jo Brand playing the police sergeant in The Pirates of Penzance?

Sounded OK to me but what do I know about singing?

Twisted mentioned Jo Brand in the Pirates but I'm thinking I'd like to take DD to see the Mikado. She would love all that leap year stuff... And the costumes of course.
