WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Featuring the Oscar winning sets and costumes from Mike Leigh's film Topsy Turvy, this superb production transports us to the magnificent court of Titipu and the hilarious tale of love, corruption in local government, marriage, executions and heroics! Written in 1885 when Gilbert had the inspired idea of transplanting mid Victorian England in to the exotic background of oriental Japan, The Mikado has a cast of comic characters whose names themselves epitomise the very essence of G&S: Koko, Yum Yum, Nanki Poo, Katisha and, of course, the Mikado himself. With Sullivan also at his very best the score is a toe sparkling gem, speeding the story along with a host of toe tapping greats.
