the mikado-crop-u2244

Hot on the heels of our great success in ‘Return To The Forbidden Planet’, we performed ‘The Mikado, or the Town of Titipu’, which contains the fantastic and well-known (we promise!) music of Arthur Sullivan, and the weird and wonderful world of The Mikado created by William Gilbert.

We attempted to elucidate this comic operetta and accentuate the twists and turns of Gilbert’s ludicrous story – a satire of Victorian England, exposing and ridiculing its moral hypocrisy – imagine a world where flirting is an offence that carries the death penalty!
