ACT 1 Sung By
Tripping hither, tripping thither Celia and Leila
Iolanthe! From thy dark exile thou art summoned Queen of the Fairies, Iolanthe, Celia, Leila and Chorus of Fairies
Good morrow, good mother Strephon and Chorus of Fairies
Fare thee well, attractive stranger Queen of the Fairies and Chorus of Fairies
Good morrow, good lover! Phyllis and Strephon
None shall part us from each other Phyllis and Strephon
Loudly let the trumpet bray Tenors and Basses
The law is the true embodiment The Lord Chancellor and Chorus of Peers
My well-loved lord and guardian dear Phyllis, Lord Tolloler and Earl of Mountararat
Nay, tempt me not Phyllis
Spurn not the nobly born Lord Tolloler and Chorus
Lords, it may not be! Phyllis, Lord Tolloler, Earl of Mountararat, Strephon, The Lord Chancellor and Chorus of Peers
When I went to the Bar as a very young man The Lord Chancellor
When darkly looms the day Phyllis, Iolanthe, Queen of the Fairies, Leila, Celia, Strephon, Lord Tolloler, Earl of Mountararat, The Lord Chancellor and Chorus of Fairies and Peers
ACT 2 Sung By
When all night long a chap remains Private Willis
Strephon's a member of Parliament! Chorus
When Britain truly ruled the waves Earl of Mountararat and Chorus
In vain you plead to us, Don't go! Leila, Celia, Chorus of Fairies, Earl of Mountararat and Lord Tolloler
Oh, foolish fay Queen of the Fairies and Chorus of Fairies
Tho' p'raps I may incur your blame Phyllis, Lord Tolloler, Earl of Mountararat and Private Willis
Love, unrequited, robs me of my rest The Lord Chancellor
He who shies at such a prize Lord Tolloler, Earl of Mountararat and The Lord Chancellor
My Bill has now been read a second time Strephon
If we're weak enough to tarry Phyllis and Strephon
My lord, a suppliant at your feet I kneel Fairies and Iolanthe
It may not be-for so the fates decide! Iolanthe, Queen of the Fairies, The Lord Chancellor and Fairies
Soon as we may, off and away! Phyllis, Iolanthe, Queen of the Fairies, Leila, Celia, Lord Tolloler, Earl of Mountararat, Strephon, The Lord Chancellor and Chorus of Fairies and Peers
