Illyria Outdoor Theatre - The Mikado

Illyria Outdoor Theatre - The Mikado


Gilbert & Sullivan’s wry comic opera, set in Japan but with satire clearly aimed at the British political classes, gets the complete Illyria treatment. It is performed by a cast of 6 actor/singers accompanied by a musical director on keyboards, and is produced on a stage boasting a strikingly large (and authentic) Japanese torii gate. Despite the reduction in scale not a single word from WS Gilbert's libretto is cut, nor a single note or harmony from Sir Arthur Sullivan's score unsung.

Following the company’s runaway successes with HMS Pinafore, The Pirates of Penzance, Iolanthe and Ruddigore Illyria returns with yet another romantic summer opera to leave you with a great big silly smile on your face and a song in your heart.

Recommended for adults and children aged 5+.
