The Mikado

By W.S. Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan

Betchworth Memorial Hall, 9-12 November 2022

Director: Trevor Allen

Musical Director: Ian Stone

The ninth and probably most enduringly popular collaboration between Gilbert & Sullivan, The Mikado ran for 672 performances after opening in 1885. Inspired by contemporary interest in Japanese culture, the exotic setting allowed Gilbert to disguise in the lyrics his pointed satirical attacks on British politics and institutions of the time
