After the success of the first two productions "Iolanthe", LOGON's 3rd G & S operetta, performed in 1984 in Omer, Beer Sheva, Tel-Aviv and Jerusalem, continued in the same vein. The cast had by now expanded to 32 with the same production team as the previous year with the notable addition of Eri Doron, our conductor from Kibbutz Lahav who began his and the kibbutz's long-standing relationship with LOGON that year.
The audiences acclaim were joined by the critics of the English and Hebrew press who all wrote enthusiastic reviews.
