About The Mikado
The Mikado description
Fake, fatuous and full of hot air.
Titipu’s finest are farcically familiar.
Gilbert & Sullivan’s topsy-turvy story focuses on the unfolding love between Nanki-Poo and Yum-Yum and the absurdity of laws and law-makers.
Nanki-Poo loves Yum-Yum but she’s betrothed to Ko-Ko, the new Lord High Executioner. When the Mikado orders a beheading, Nanki-Poo and Ko-Ko try to come to an arrangement that doesn’t involve anyone losing their head!
Packed full of memorable melodies, the most celebrated moment of all is the Lord High Executioner Ko-Ko’s ‘little list’ song, which is always a topical highlight of Jonathan Miller’s dazzlingly inventive production.
Returning to the role he has made his own, star G&S performer Richard Suart is the scheming Ko-Ko. He is joined by Andrew Shore as Pooh-Bah. As the oversized Mikado, we welcome distinguished bass Sir John Tomlinson.
The romantic leads are played by two ENO Harewood Artists, Soraya Mafi and Elgan Llŷr Thomas.
Co-production with Houston Grand Opera and LA Opera
'If you have never seen it, go. If it’s a decade or two since you last went, then go again.'
'Riotous production hits the funny bone.'

We sat in Row F seats 18 & 19 which was excellent for visibility but to read the words above the stage required moving your head up and down frequently & meant you missed some of the acting & dancing on stage.

Wonderful set and costumes, a real visual treat. First time I've seen G&S performed professionally with a full orchestra and cast/company, and I loved it.
