Charles Court Opera return to the King’s Head Theatre for their final production in the historic original venue; a smart, stylish, sparkling fresh version of the most loved of Gilbert and Sullivan’s comic masterpieces, The Mikado, with a brand new production design, and a typically classy CCO twist.
Behind the closed doors at the British Consulate in the town of Titipu, Japan, the scheming, slippery Lord High Executioner is about to hatch one plot too far, with far-reaching and hilarious consequences for everyone involved, especially when the Mikado himself arrives…
With such timeless comic songs as A wandering minstrel, I, I’ve got a little list and Three little maids from school and a brand new setting, this punchy and hilarious satire promises to be a treat for operetta lovers and newcomers alike.
