Following their sell-out production of “The Pirates of Penzance” in 2018, the Cambridge University Gilbert and Sullivan Society return to the beautiful Minack Theatre with “Princess Ida”.

Twenty years ago, King Hildebrand and King Gama arranged a diplomatic match between their infant children, with the marriage to take place when Gama’s daughter Ida came of age. But while Prince Hilarion eagerly awaits his wedding, Ida has other ideas.

She has forsworn men, and now runs a women’s university. When Gama’s failure to deliver his daughter almost provokes war between the two kingdoms, Hilarion and his friends attempt to infiltrate the university, win Ida’s heart, and ensure peace. But Ida will not yield so easily, either to Hilarion’s wooing, or to King Hildebrand’s threats.

Performances start 23rd September and run until the 27th. 7.30pm with matinees at 2pm on the 24th and 26th. Tickets start at £10 or £4 for children.
