Gilbert & Sullivan's collegiate satire feels at home in the Finger Lakes

Gilbert & Sullivan’s satire on women’s education, Princess Ida, has been relocated to a thinly disguised Wells College in the late 1800s by Anthony Di Renzo. The Cornell Savoyards are on a tour of this version, now appearing at the Endicott Performing Arts Center on Sunday, January 10th at 3pm. Two wealthy robber barons unite to launder their ill-gotten gains by founding a college, but the high-minded daughter of one of them refuses to cooperate, and opens her own university.
