The Mikado is without doubt Gilbert & Sullivan’s most famous comic opera. While set in the imaginary Japanese town of Titipu, the satire is directed fairly and squarely at the British and their love of bureaucracy.

This stunning production of Gilbert and Sullivan’s comic masterpiece transports us to modern-day Japan, where Harajuku fashion, mobile phones and Hello Kitty rule. Filled with vibrant colour, sharp blades, even sharper wits and an excellent cast of New Zealand and Australian singers, The Mikado was hailed as “laugh out loud stuff” which “fizzes with charm” by reviewers of the Australian season.
