Opera South East
White Rock Theatre, Hastings
Fri 24 & Sat 25 Apr 7.30pm
One of the most popular and humorous operas ever written, The Mikado is always a treat. It satirises Victorian British society, customs and pretensions through a farcical Gilbertian plot brimming with wit and sharp observation, all under the disguise of the Japanese Imperial Court of long ago. In this topsy-turvy world, flirting is punishable by death, and KoKo, the hapless Lord High Executioner, has much on his mind, including trying to avoid his own decapitation! A tale of love and deception, with many memorable songs and plenty of opportunity to poke fun at 21st century Britain and its leading establishment and political figures. Who can we be thinking of? Plus ca change, plus c’est la meme chose! This will be a traditional production, with fabulous flowing costumes and brilliant make-up. A feast for the senses…what a great way to spend a Spring evening.
