Perhaps the most widely-loved and hilarious of Gilbert and Sullivan’s Savoy Operas, this classic production by Opera Australia creates a fantastical, imaginary Japan. With amazingly detailed sets, lavish costumes and a fabulous cast astutely directed by Stuart Maunder, this comic operetta sparkles from beginning to end. The music is pure joy, with an amazing performance drawn from Orchestra Victoria by the superb conductor Brian Castles-Onion.

**

“If it's colour you want, Opera Australia's 1985 production of The Mikado, revamped in 2004, has it in spades...But if you're after reasonable taste and G&S traditions subtly tweaked, look away...Goodchild's designs scream for attention, especially in the Blu-ray edition (very crisp and bouncy).”

MusicWeb International

June 2012

“Stuart Maunder’s production is fast-paced and much detailed carefully planned stage business holds the audience’s attention...All characters sing superbly and the vocal numbers are a joy to listen to...The contribution by the musical director and the orchestra was first class. A new and fresh version of the overture has been substituted for the traditional one.”
