About 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.

Co-production with Houston Grand Opera and LA Opera

'If you have never seen it, go. If it’s a decade or two since you last went, then go again.'

The Guardian

'Riotous production hits the funny bone.'
