uG&S To Give Princess Ida' To Consider NATIONALWORLD AFFAIRS:

FEMINIST MOVEMENT-The Gilbert and Sullivan Society will present "Princess Ida," a satire
on a group of university women who try to be independent and control the world without men,
at 8:30 p.m. today through Saturday in Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre. The operetta, which was writ-
ten about 1890, at a time when, the presence of women in universities was rare, shows the fair sex
attempting to preserve university education for posterity-until the women realize there will be no
posterity without the men they are trying to overtake. In one scene, the irate men storm the women's
castle, trying in turn to overtake them. The war between the sexes begins when Lord Hildebrand and
his son Hilarion await King Gama and his daughter Ida, who is as lovely as she is disagreeable.
Hilarion and she have been betrothed for 20 years, when she was one and he twice as old. But in-
stead of Ida, King Gama is accompanied by three unlovely sons. As Hildebrand has become im-
patient after 20 years, he promptly arrests the four visitors when they reveal that Ida has walled
herself off, guarded by 100 maidens, and the confusion begins.
