“Jeff Clarke’s vivacious production is delightful. Mischievous and witty, and the outfits have all the razzle-dazzle of Versace.” FINANCIAL TIMES

The Mikado

Set in the zany flashy world of modern fashion houses with costumes inspired by Versace and Jean-Paul Gaultier, this energetic production promises a riot of gorgeous and bizarre creations.

Expect sequins, stunning gowns, glamour, glorious singing, and of course, the company’s inimitable brand of mad-cap humour! The cast includes Opera della Luna stalwarts and Gilbert and Sullivan specialists: Richard Gauntlett as Ko-Ko, Louise Crane as Katisha, and John Griffiths as The Mikado.

Even the most hardened traditionalists will be delighted by the verve of Opera della Luna’s performance, whilst those who have consigned Gilbert and Sullivan to the dustbin of history will be forced to think again.

Opera della Luna have now established themselves as the country’s leading exponents of operetta and comic music-theatre.
