What better way to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee than a truly British Mikado? Set in Japan, Gilbert & Sullivan intended this operetta as a satire on British pomposity. On Sunday 17th June, Opera Anywhere and the Letcombe Singers are presenting a special Diamond Jubilee Mikado combined with a Last Night of the Proms finale. The event will be introduced by Richard Baker OBE.
Opera Anywhere has delighted audiences of all ages for 12 years now and is unique - combining beautiful singing with having fun and a good dose of audience participation - which of course is optional. Over the years Opera Anywhere has proved to be a foundation to launch the careers of numerous established singers, many of whom now perform for International Opera Houses and have received prestigious awards.
The Mikado will take place in our Mediterranean Courtyard, in the round, and is weatherproof, so even if it rains the show will go on ...
