Iolanthe (Special) (1984)

In 1981 the Stratford Festival began a series of innovative Gilbert & Sullivan productions directed by Brian Macdonald with musical direction by Carriere, culminating in the productions of The Mikado, Iolanthe, and The Gondoliers in 1984. The Mikado toured to Britain and New York to favourable reviews. These productions were broadcast by the CBC TV (produced and directed by Norman Campbell), and subsequently released on video by Home Vision.
