Charles Court Opera bring their highly successful 5-star London production of the most loved of Gilbert and Sullivan's comic masterpieces, The Mikado.

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.

Accompanied by the National Festival Orchestra.
