Iolanthe is a brilliantly funny, satirical fantasy, revealing a typically Gilbert & Sullivan topsy-turvy worldview. Phyllis and Strephon wish to marry, but as Phyllis is a ward of court she requires the Lord Chancellor's permission. The Lord Chancellor, however, wants her for himself.

Matched by Sullivan's ever-melodious score, Gilbert not only targets peers of the realm, but also offers thinly disguised portraits of Queen Victoria, John Brown (her personal servant and 'close companion'), Lord Randolph Churchill (reformist Tory) and William Gladstone (Liberal PM of the day).
