1992: Princess Ida

Second showing for Princess Ida

As you will see from our archive list, the next nine shows contained no fewer than four of the other operas, and by the end of 1987 the G&S canon had been completed, apart from The Grand Duke, a show which is exceptionally rarely performed.

By all accounts the 1992 repeat of Princess Ida was a very happy show:
