The Mikado

The Carl Rosa Company arrives at the Alexandra Theatre to transport you to the magnificent Japanese court of Titipu. This hilarious tale of love, marriage, executions and heroics brings to life some of Gilbert & Sullivan’s most colourful and popular comic characters, from Ko-Ko the Lord High Executioner, Pooh-Bah and Nanki-Poo to the delightful three little maids.

Carl Rosa’s stunning production uniquely features the original 1885 period costume designs from Gilbert’s own Savoy production as seen in Mike Leigh’s Oscar-winning film Topsy-Turvey.

This productions stars Jonathan Ansell as Nanki Poo, Nichola McAuliffe as Katisha and Sylvester McCoy as The Mikado.
