Ballet Theatre UK presents the classic ballet, Giselle.  First performed in 1841 with music by Adolphe Adam, this ballet has retained its popularity with audiences and is considered to be one of the jewels in the crown of the romantic repertoire.

It tells the tragic tale of Giselle, a young girl who falls deeply in love but she is cruelly deceived as he was already betrothed to another. Through despair and desperation, she kills herself as she cannot live without him. The Queen of the Wilis, along with the ghosts of young girls who die before their wedding nights, condemns the lover to dance to his death. He can only be saved by the intervention of the spirit of Giselle and the break of dawn which force the Wilis to flee.

IOLANTHE

Monday, 23rd March 2020 - 7:30pm

TICKETS: Adults £9.00, Friends of the Regal £8.50, Students/ ES40s £4.00

Somerset Opera makes a welcome return to the Regal Theatre, Minehead to perform Iolanthe, a comic opera in two acts, by Gilbert and Sullivan.

The fairy Iolanthe has been banished from fairyland because she married a mortal.   Her son, Strephon, wants to marry Phyllis, but as a ward of court she needs her guardian, the Lord Chancellor’s, permission. However, the Lord Chancellor, and half the peers in the House of Lords, are sighing after her. Soon the peers and the fairies are at virtual war.

With a melodious score and brilliant wit, Iolanthe satirises many aspects of British government, law and society.  The House of Lords is lampooned as a bastion of the ineffective, privileged and dim-witted and the political party system and other institutions are mocked. Yet the criticism is couched among such amiable absurdities that it is all received as good fun
