The Mikado has been Gilbert and Sullivan's most popular comic opera ever since it first opened at The Savoy Theatre in March 1855. And here it is, once again, in the expert hands of Southampton Operatic Society.
SOS loves its G&S, and that innate enthusiasm for the genre shines through in this top quality production. Featuring fun with fans, chopsticks and choppers, hilarious insights into court etiquette and many of the best loved songs (including 'Tit Willow', 'Three Little Maids' and 'I've Got A Little List') this show is guaranteed to delight G&S fans, old and new.
This enlightening and entertaining book follows the growth of one of Southampton’s oldest institutions from a small operatic group performing Gilbert and Sullivan for pennies a ticket to a thriving and award-winning company that produces everything from classic operas to modern musicals.
Using archive material, newspaper reviews, committee notes and reminiscences, this definitive guide reveals the trials and triumphs, silliness and sadness behind the 123 shows performed by Southampton Operatic Society over the last 90 years.
