Iolanthe (Sullivan, Arthur)
Note that the orchestral parts presented here do NOT contain the Act II recitative and song for Strephon, "My bill has now been read a second time" or "Fold your flapping wings". This number, while it's in the Schirmer vocal score (the Bryceson Treharne edition, numbered 22 in the book), was cut soon after the premiere in 1882 and is rarely performed in the show due to the darker, angrier tone of the song which contrasts heavily with the lighter character of the rest of the operetta.
