The Mikado Tickets

London Opera
Wit, charm and catchy tunes in Gilbert and Sullivan's comic opera The Mikado
Fake, fatuous and full of hot air. Titipu’s finest are farcically familiar. Gilbert & Sullivan’s topsy-turvy story focuses on the unfolding love between Nanki-Poo and Yum-Yum and the absurdity of laws and law-makers. Nanki-Poo loves Yum-Yum but she’s betrothed to Ko-Ko, the new Lord High Executioner. When the Mikado orders a beheading, Nanki-Poo and Ko-Ko try to come to an arrangement that doesn’t involve anyone losing their head! Packed full of memorable melodies, the most celebrated moment of all is the Lord High Executioner Ko-Ko’s ‘little list’ song, which is always a topical highlight of Jonathan Miller’s dazzlingly inventive production. Returning to the role he has made his own, star G&S performer Richard Suart is the scheming Ko-Ko. He is joined by Andrew Shore as Pooh-Bah. As the oversized Mikado, we welcome distinguished bass Sir John Tomlinson. The romantic leads are played by two ENO Harewood Artists, Soraya Mafi and Elgan Llŷr Thomas. Co-production with Houston Grand Opera and LA Opera Please Note: on Sunday 29 November will be filmed as part of ENO Screen.

    Very good. Theatre ENO. Far too hot in Upper Circle.

    Great singing, costumes and music, a wonderful production albeit slightly modern. A more traditional Japanese setting is what I was expecting but the producer pulled it off well. Ko-Ko was superb!

    We thought it was a most brilliant production and excellent entertainment.

  • Review Avatar Feb 5, 2016

    The production was excellent and the costumes fantastic BUT the acoustics were awful - we could not hear the words for the individual singers. Lots of other people sat in the dress circle commented the same. We spoke to the steward who suggested we move forward to empty seats where the sound is better but there were no spare seats. It was a present for my mum and I felt really embarrassed that she couldn't hear the words - it made me wish I'd bought closer seats - but I din't ever think I wouldn't be able to hear properly.

    Brilliant!!!!!! Everything about this production was A1. It's my 3rd time!

  • Review Avatar Feb 7, 2016

    It was first time to Opera and it was really fantastic. Seats we had were just a little too far back so we couldn't see screen. Overall very good will go again.

    Brilliant production. Wonderful music, classic G&S comedy and up-to-date references- What's not to like ? As is usually the case, it doesn't pay to buy London theatre tickets until the last minute if you are prepared to take the risk on availability! Who wants to sit next to someone who paid half the price you did? I just hope ENO can resolve their funding crisis without excluding those like me who live hours from London, so pay high travel and accommodation costs before buying expensive tickets. What about more all-inclusive deals or a limited number of cut-price tickets ? Are such deals already available, and if so how do I access them? Wonderful ENO is too important to lose!

    A very very good experience. The actors & actresses were brilliant and executed the story magically! Pity the theatre ran out of programmes for the matinee. However the staff were pleasant and genuinely upset fronting the management. Don' t quite understand the logic of the management would have thought they would have known how many seats were filled and estimated a programme for every two seats. Or alternatively get a better printing contract. Surely there is enough competition in the printing industry these days to get someone to do a short run . After all the setting up is by computer not set by hand as previously, so it is only a time and manpower cost even if it is a short run?????
