| Very enjoyable
This production of Iolanthe was one of a series produced by the same people.

I liked it a lot, despite the use of some "special effects" that are supposed to be magical and fairy-like and which look, after 25 years, rather dated. This is probably because of the lively performances of the leading members of the cast.

The first-act finale was great, and the nightmare song in the second act was handled in an interesting way that worked pretty well. However, "If you go in," the famous trio that follows it, looked awkward. At least until they all got going and the joy of the music outweighed the strange staging.

All in all, it was a very entertaining performance.
