Since its first production more than 25 years ago, Jonathan Miller’s comic masterpiece The Mikado has become the definitive adaptation of the timeless Gilbert and Sullivan classic. First staged at the London Coliseum in 1986, this operetta wittily transposes the topsy-turvy Victorian values of Gilbert’s mock-oriental Town of Titipu to a Marx Brothers-inspired take on the denizens of a very English 1930s seaside hotel.
The star-studded cast of seasoned veterans and fresh-faced newcomers is led by ENO’s resident master of the comic patter song, Richard Stuart, who's celebrating his own 25th anniversary in the role of Ko-Ko, the Lord High Executioner. With its high-kicking chorus lines, sparkling wit and 1930s inspired sets and costumes, Miller’s spectacular song and dance show is packed with ‘theatrical delights’ (The Guardian) and ‘a wow for all the family’ (Daily Telegraph). 'DONT MISS IT' (The Guardian)
