Princess Ida and the Boston Flickr Group

I was surfing around the Boston and Surrounding Burbs flickr group when I found this post:

The Harvard-Radcliffe Gilbert and Sullivan Players present
Princess Ida

Produced by Jess Bloom ’07, Celia Maccoby ’07, and Margaret Maloney ’06
Directed by Charlie Miller ’08
Music directed by Ben Green ’06

Agassiz Theatre, Radcliffe Yard
April 7-16

Sword fights! Drag! Feminism! Eunuchs! Written at the height of their
careers, Princess Ida may be one of Gilbert and Sullivan’s lesser-known works, but is loved by those familiar with it for its unusually romantic score, striking ballads, and genuine love story that set it apart from the other operettas. When Princess Ida, the leader of a woman’s college, refuses to fulfill her obligation to marry Prince Hilarion, a battle of the sexes ensues. Will a dastardly scheme ruin everything or will love conquer all? Ida’s fate depends on the answer…

Tickets available from the Harvard Box Office in the Holyoke Center in Harvard Square, online at www.fas.harvad.edu/~hbo, or by phone at (617) 496-2222.

Sounds like a fun time. I’d never heard of this show before.

The Boston Flickr group is interesting – there’s even a post which states that The MBTA has banned photography. That’s a crying shame.
