Gilbert and Sullivan: The Mikado

David Parry, conductor
Original Director: Jonathan Miller
Revival Director: Elaine Tyler-Hall
Jonathan Miller’s stylish song-and-dance staging, which has proved an unfailing ‘source of innocent merriment’ ever since it first graced the London Coliseum stage in 1986.

Wittily transposing the topsy-turvy Victorian values of Gilbert’s mock-oriental Town of Titipu to a Marx Brothers-inspired take on the denizens of a very English 1930s seaside hotel, Miller’s  production returns, two years after celebrating its silver jubilee. The cast of seasoned veterans and fresh-faced newcomers is led by ENO’s resident master of the comic patter song, Richard Suart, who this season celebrates his own 25th anniversary in the role of Ko-Ko, the Lord High Executioner.

Cast includes:

Ko-Ko: Richard Suart
Nanki-Poo: Robert Murray (Gareth Huw John will sing on the Dec 8 matinee performance)
