A musical tale set in an Edwardian stately home. After an improper liaison between a member of the aristocracy and someone from the downstairs staff, one of the lovers is forced into exile. After travelling through Europe - and the Arabian desert – they return home to a colourful masked ball. The drama provides a wonderful showcase for well-loved music from composers such as Strauss, Lehar, and Romberg, as well as festive favourites. A feel-good Christmas extravaganza for all the family.
The Mikado is one of Gilbert & Sullivan’s most well-known works, satirising Victorian Britain’s politics and aristocracy, cleverly disguised by its setting in exotic Japan. It is a tangled web of intrigue, false identities, thwarted love and marriage, with the ever-present threat of execution hanging over all those involved. The result is a complex parody with memorable tunes, witty dialogue and colourful costumes.
