The Mikado at the London Coliseum – 21st Nov 2015 to 6th Feb 2016

mikado

Gilbert and Sullivan’s best comic opera makes its return to the London Coliseum with Jonathan Miller’s Marx Brothers-inspired song-and-dance Mikado.

Set in a English 1930s seaside hotel, this  popular production offers an attractive combination of Gilbert’s  wit, Sullivan’s melodies and Miller’s comedy.

The story centre around Nanki-Poo who loves Yum-Yum. Just one snag. She’s betrothed to Ko-Ko, the new Lord High Executioner. And Ko-Ko needs to find someone to execute – chop chop! Otherwise, it’s his own neck on the block. Maybe Ko-Ko and Nanki-Poo can come to some arrangement… without anyone losing their head?

Distinguished bass Robert Lloyd sings the genial Mikado for the first time, 46 years after making his ENO debut, while Richard Suart returns as Ko-Ko. ENO Harewood Artists Mary Bevan and Anthony Gregory play the lovers Yum-Yum and Nanki-Poo, while ENO Mackerras Conducting Fellow Fergus Macleod makes his company debut.

Running time: 2hr 30mins

Language: Sung in English, with lyrics projected above the stage
