Gilbert and Sullivan Society to present latest show

The University of Aberdeen Gilbert and Sullivan Society is once again treading the boards and will present a lesser-known work: Princess Ida.

Gilbert's "respectful perversion" of Tennyson's romantic poem The Princess is often seen as merely a Victorian male chauvinist's satire on advanced education for women; but Gilbert is not so naive, and the treatment of the theme is deeper than it appears.  Princess Ida will be performed at the Aberdeen Arts Centre from Wednesday 11th - Saturday 14th February at 7.30 p.m and a Saturday matinee performance at 2.30pm.

Tickets are priced £15 and £12 for concession and are available from Aberdeen Box Office, from Committee members by contacting info@gilbertandsullivansociety.co.uk) or Derrick McClure  j.d.mcclure@abdn.ac.uk.
