W.S. Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan

The Mikado

The Mikado

Perhaps the most widely-loved and hilarious of Gilbert and Sullivan’s Savoy Operas, this delightful production by Opera Australia creates a fantastical, imaginary Japan. With amazingly detailed sets, lavish costumes and a fabulous cast astutely directed by Stuart Maunder, this comic operetta sparkles from beginning to end. Mitchell Butel’s Ko-Ko is priceless, and his singing superb. Kanen Breen portrays Nanki-Poo as delightfully happy and positive, even when about to lose his head, while Jacqueline Dark brings compelling depth to the wicked Katisha. Taryn Fiebig is the lovely Yum-Yum, and Warwick Fyfe the ludicrous, overworked and severe Pooh-Bah. The music is pure joy, with an amazing performance drawn from the Orchestra Victoria by the superb conductor Brian Castles-Onions.

Sung in English with English, Spanish, French, German, and Italian subtitles.
