Princess Ida

Lamplighters Music Theater

Lamplighters' update to a satire of feminism and Darwin. In a year with many women running for president, why not a Princess choosing her own path?


This is what SF/Arts curator Jean Schiffman has to say about Princess Ida :

Collaborators W.S. Gilbert (book and lyrics) and Arthur Sullivan (score) based this operetta on Tennyson’s poem “The Princess,” a satire of the feminism of their era, the late 19th century. That’s problematic for modern audiences, but Lamplighters director Barbara Heroux has come up with a solution. She promises some tweaking without losing the humor of the original.
