Edinburgh Gilbert and Sullivan Society present

The Mikado 

Edinburgh Gilbert and Sullivan Society, the company who brought you H.M.S Pinafore last year, present the timeless G&S classic, The Mikado. Widely regarded as the greatest comic opera ever written, The Mikado has delighted audiences across the world for more than 130 years.

Discover intrigue and romance in the Town of Titipu, where flirting is punishable by death. Nanki-Poo attempts to escape from the formidable Katisha and into the arms of Yum-Yum. However, Ko-Ko, the Lord High Executioner has other ideas – avoiding his own decapitation being one of them!

Featuring a five-star cast and orchestra, and packed with world-famous musical numbers including The Sun Whose Rays, Three Little Maids from School, and Tit-Willow, make sure to put this stunning production of The Mikado on your list – it’s certainly not one to be missed!


Saturday Matinee Children’s Party

We are also offering a fun filled pre-show talk at 2pm before the Saturday matinee performance which is designed just for children. Join us at the special reduced price of £9 and take the chance to hear the story and meet some of the characters up close before you see them on the stage.

The reduced price includes juice, biscuits and an activity pack and is available to all children under 12 and up to 2 accompanying adults*. Prizes will be available for the best costumes if your child would like to join us in costume.
