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 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 Orchestra Victoria by the superb conductor Brian Castles-Onions.
