Iolanthe (FORBEAR! 2018)

9 Aug 2018

Making their debut at this year's Festival is FORBEAR!  Their mission statement is to bring together performers from all different backgrounds: opera singers, musical theatre performers, dancers and actors producing uniquely interesting and enjoyable productions.  The company is not only a platform through which professionals can display their talents, but also a means by which their participants can learn from each other and grow as performers.  Their professional cast will present Iolanthee with supporting chorus.  They come to Harrogate this summer following rave reviews for their 'Grand Duke" presented in London earlier this year.
