Charles Court Opera

The Mikado

, 7:30pm Buxton Opera Housebutton--dates-and-timesDates & Times

Regular favourites at the Gilbert & Sullivan Festival, Charles Court Opera return with their smart, stylish new take on possibly the most loved of their comic masterpieces, The Mikado, giving it a classy CCO twist.

Behind the closed doors at the British Consulate in the town of Titipu, Japan, the scheming, slippery Lord High Executioner is about to hatch one plot too far, with far-reaching and hilarious consequences for everyone involved, especially when the Mikado himself arrives...

Containing familiar songs including "A wandering minstrel, I", "I've got a little list" and "Three little maids from school", this punchy and hilarious satire promises to be a treat for operetta lovers and newcomers alike.

Directed by John Savournin, this production, which played in London to critical acclaim, is sure to be a highlight of the 2020 Festival, playing on the same day as their brand new, magical production of Iolanthe.

“From the opening explosion of energy this is a show that knows where it's heading, and that's to five-star heaven.”
