Gilbert & Sullivan’s topsy-turvy story, The Mikado will play at the London Coliseum between 28 Oct – 30 Nov 2019.
A co-production between Houston Grand Opera and LA Opera, The Mikado is one of the most famous and best-loved of Gilbert and Sullivan‘s operettas.
Packed full of memorable melodies, the show revolves around Nanki-Poo, who loves Yum-Yum. Unfortunately, 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!
Reprising his role as Ko-Ko is Richard Suart, and he’s joined by Andrew Shore as Pooh-Bah. Playing the Mikado is distinguished bass Sir John Tomlinson. The romantic leads are played by two ENO Harewood Artists, Soraya Mafi and Elgan Llŷr Thomas.
