The Bay Area’s acclaimed Lamplighters Music Theatre continues its 60th Anniversary season with Gilbert and Sullivan’s delightful tale of cross-dressing princes and the feminists who love them, PRINCESS IDA. This is the show that the Lamplighters took to England in 1995, and won the grand prize at the International Gilbert & Sullivan Festival.

Please join other Yale Club members for a performance of Princess Ida on February 1st, 2013, at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco.

Tickets are $39 each for YCSF members and $44 each for non-members. Seats will be located in rows J and K. Purchase via the link below.

A brief synopsis of the show:

A 20 year old treaty states that Princess Ida and Prince Hilarion are to marry when they come of age. That time has come, but Ida refuses to honor a commitment made on her behalf when she was an infant, and has gone off to the country to start a women's university. There she teaches an interesting variation on Darwin's theory: that men – not women, just men – are descended from apes, and thus are inferior to women. The Prince, on the other hand, is an unabashed romantic, and decides to woo Ida and win her love. He and two friends make their way to the university, where they disguise themselves as women in order to enroll and get close to her.
