The Mikado, 2015, Johnathan Shackleton

Almost 30 years on from its premiere, Jonathan Miller’s dazzlingly inventive staging is considered by many to be the definitive production of this much-loved Gilbert and Sullivan comic opera. Set in an ever-so English 1930s seaside hotel, Miller’s Marx Brothers-inspired song-and-dance Mikado has long been a popular hit with audiences of all ages. The combination of Gilbert’s virtuosic wit, Sullivan’s memorable melodies and Miller’s witty antics is irresistible. This 2015 revival marked the debut of ENO Mackerras Conducting Fellow Fergus Macleod.
