The Mikado is probably the most famous and best-loved of all the Gilbert and Sullivan’s operas. Nanki-Poo is in love with Yum-Yum – but there is a problem. She is betrothed to Ko-Ko, Titipu’s Lord High Executioner. Ko-Ko needs to execute someone within a month – or otherwise it might well be his neck on the block. Time is running out. This hilarious story features big, colourful characters and well-known tunes that you will be humming long after you have returned home.

‘The cast keep the joy and energy flowing. Bravo to the Company’ The Public Reviews, Truro
