About The Mikado

The award winning “masters of Gilbert & Sullivan in small spaces”, Charles Court Opera, present their intimate, highly successful 5 star London production of the most loved of Gilbert and Sullivan’s comic operas, The Mikado. The scheming Lord High Executioner is about to hatch one plot too far, with far-reaching and hilarious consequences for everyone involved, especially when the ruler himself arrives… Gilbert’s pen was rarely sharper than when he wrote this punchy, lively satire, which contains familiar songs by Sullivan, including ”I’ve got a little list” and “The sun whose rays”, that are by turns toe-tapping and sumptuous. Presenting this satirical farce for a modern audience, CCO’s witty, sophisticated staging places the characters at the forefront, and promises to be a treat for operetta lovers and newcomers alike. The production is directed by G&S specialist John Savournin, whose recent main stage productions include The Pirates of Penzance and HMS Pinafore, both co-productions with Opera Holland Park, Trial by Jury for Opera North, and Iolanthe for the International G&S Festival. Content Warning: Themes of death, referenced in a satirical manner.
