Princess Ida

By Gilbert & Sullivan

Directed by Audrey Wax & Grant Harville

The show that immediately preceded the Mikado by Gilbert & Sullivan. Great music and humor. The humor pokes fun at many things including education, women's education, the relationships between men and women, the military, the government, etc.
