The Mikado

Gilbert & Sullivan's comic opera The Mikado returns to the London Coliseum having first graced the famed West End theatre's stage in 1986. Satirically transposing the topsy-turvy orientalism of the Town of Titipu to the ever so slightly seedy opulence of a typical English 30s seaside hotel, this revival of a modern musical masterpiece stars Robert Murray and Mary bevan as Nanki-Poo and Yum-Yum (both new to the roles), with Richard Suart celebrating his 25th anniversary as his resplendent Ko-Ko (the pathologically list-making Lord High Executioner), Richard Angas back as the amiably grotesque Mikado and Donald Maxwell playing Poo-Bah (the Lord High Everything Else). Elaine Tyler-Hall directs Jonathan Miller's inspired, much-loved and hilarious ENO production of one of the most frequently played musical theatre pieces in history.

About London Coliseum - English National Opera (ENO)

London Coliseum is a magnificent historic building and an excellent venue in which to enjoy the soaring sounds and high drama of some truly thrilling operas. This impressive theatre, which started its life as a venue for variety shows, is now - conversely - indistinguishable from its artistically first-class company in residence, the English National Opera.
