The Mikado

2 October
The Mikado

Gilbert and Sullivan

Desperate to get away? Take a trip to the topsy-turvy town of Titipu in the land of Pajan! Find romance, chicanery and a legal conundrum under the capricious eye of the Mikado.

Nanki-Poo cannot marry Yum-Yum because she is betrothed to Ko-Ko, the Lord High Executioner, who cannot do his duty without executing himself. Yet when the Mikado insists upon an execution, somehow no-one loses his head…

A production by The Merry Opera Company, directed by John Ramster with musical direction by Bradley Wood, this show will have you ‘smiling from start to finish’ (2021).

‘unpretentious, good-humoured frivolity’ Nicola Lisle, Oxford Times

It was our absolute Merry pleasure to return to the stage with our brand-new production of Gilbert & Sullivan’s The Mikado in Autumn 2021. After an incredibly difficult year and a half, we couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate a return to Merry form than with this surprising and high-octane romp through a beloved operetta classic, set against a backdrop of the energy and ebullience of music halls and vaudeville. And we were right! So right, in fact, that we are already providing a highly demanded revival.
