Charles Court Opera presents THE MIKADO by Gilbert & Sullivan

***** "Five-star heaven” - What's On Stage

Director: John Savournin
Musical Director: David Eaton
Designer: Rachel Szmukler

Charles Court Opera return to the Blackfriars Theatre with their stylish, highly successful 5 star London production of the most loved of Gilbert and Sullivan’s comic masterpieces, The Mikado, giving it a 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...

Containing familiar songs including “A wandering minstrel, I”, ”I’ve got a little list” and “Three little maids from school”, this punchy and hilarious satire promises to be a treat for operetta lovers and newcomers alike.

Press for CCO’s The Mikado:

***** "From the opening explosion of energy this is a show that knows where it's heading, and that's to five-star heaven. Inventive on top of original wrapped in outrageous.” - What's On Stage

**** "The cast sings and acts with a winning blend of gusto and wit... the best place to take your Gilbert & Sullivan.” - Evening Standard

***** "This production simply cannot be bettered." - The Spy in the Stalls

**** "The Mikado is full of wit, impeccable timing and exceptional acting and singing by the energetic cast. This is a triumphant achievement both visually and musically…” - The Stage
