Iolanthe[edit]

A little bit of D'Auban's choreography survives to this day. At a Carl Rosa Iolanthe that I saw a year or two ago, they used the familiar old D'Oyly Carte choreography for the Act II trio. This, according to an article on D'Auban in The Savoyard, was pure D'Auban. The problem is how to cite it. We can rely of The Savoyard for saying that his dance was still in use in 1982, but I can't think of any source (other than the OR ones of my own eyes) that says it was replicated in the 2000s by Carl Rosa.

Well, you can start by saying that DOC used it for over a century until its closing. As for Carl Rosa, ouch! The Times didn't think much of their Iolanthe: [1]. This refers to Gilbert's prompt book: "Director Peter Mulloy, knowing that Peers still present a highly charged satirical target, aims for a balance between the original production intentions (assisted by Gilbert's prompt book) and a contemporary approach." All I can think of is a look at all the reviews to see if anyone mentioned it. BTW, in looking at this issue, I found this rather extensive article on Iolanthe. Do you think it is a reliable source for the Iolanthe article, or should be an EL? -- Ssilvers (talk) 16:44, 30 January 2011 (UTC)
