Thursday, July 18 7 pm at Rennebohm Park, Madison The Capitol City Band in concert. Friday July 19 7:30 pm at UW Music Hall, 925 Bascom Mall, Madison. Repeated Saturday, 7/20 at 7:30 pm, Sunday 7/21 at 3 pm, Thursday 7/25, Friday 7/26 and Saturday 7/27 at 7 pm, Sunday, 7/28 at 3 pm). The Madison Savoyards present their production of Gilbert and Sullivan’s “Iolanthe”. The Madison Savoyards first production in 1963 was Iolanthe so it is fitting that the second fifty years of Gilbert & Sullivan in Madison also begins with Iolanthe in 2013. All performances will be in Music Hall on the UW-Madison campus (on Park Street near State at the foot of Bascom Hill) There will be seven performances: Iolanthe was last performed by the Madison Savoyards in 2001 (program cover from that performance, right) and previously in 1988, 1979, 1971 and 1963. The Gilbert & Sullivan archive says about Iolanthe: Iolanthe, or “The Peer and the Peri”, opened at the Savoy Theatre on November 25, 1882, three nights after the final performance of Patience at the same theatre, and ran for 398 performances. Gilbert had taken pot shots at the aristocracy before, but in this “fairy opera,” the House of Lords is lampooned as a bastion of the ineffective, privileged and dim-witted. The political party system and other institutions also come in for a dose of satire. Yet, both author and composer managed to couch the criticism among such bouncy, amiable absurdities that it is all received as good fun. Both Gilbert and Sullivan were at the height of their creative powers in 1882, and many people feel that Iolanthe, their seventh work together, is the most perfect of their collaborations. Saturday July 20, 11 am at Overture Center-Overture Hall. Free Farmers’ Market Organ Concert with organist Wyatt Smith. Wyatt Smith has thrilled audiences at the Free Farmers’ Market Concerts for several seasons. Now he returns with a program that includes J. S. Bach’s Toccata in F, and an amazing selection of movements from from Kurt Knecht’s Missouri Sonat, and Louis Vierne’s best and most popular work, the Symphony in D. Everyone is welcome and no tickets are needed. Sunday July 21 4 pm at Holy Wisdom Monastery, 4200 Highway M, Middleton. Father Bob Koopman, OSB, presents a piano concert “Celebrating Benedict”.
