Almost 30 years after its premiere, Jonathan Miller’s dazzlingly inventive staging of this much-loved Gilbert and Sullivan comic opera returns to the London Coliseum.
Set in an ever-so English 1930s seaside hotel, Miller’s Marx Brothers-inspired, song-and-dance take on The Mikado has become a popular hit with audiences of all ages, combining Gilbert’s virtuosic wit, Sullivan’s memorable melodies and Miller’s hilarious antics.
Distinguished bass Robert Lloyd sings the genial Mikado for the first time, 46 years after making his English National Opera debut.
The production is sung in English with lyrics projected above the stage.
