Screening : The Mikado

The English National Opera, directed by Jonathan Miller

The Mikado is one of most famous and best-loved of Gilbert and Sullivan’s operettas.

Nanki-Poo loves Yum-Yum. Just one snag. She’s betrothed to Ko-Ko, the new Lord High Executioner. And Ko-Ko needs to find someone to execute – chop chop! Otherwise, it’s his own neck on the block.

Maybe Ko-Ko and Nanki-Poo can come to some arrangement … without anyone losing their head?

Set in an ever-so English 1930s seaside hotel, ENO’s iconic production of The Mikado is a popular hit with audiences of all ages.

Experience Gilbert and Sullivan’s irresistible combination of virtuosic wit, memorable melodies and hilarious antics in this much-loved production performed by the English National Opera and directed by Jonathan Miller.
