Summary

Summary

Gilbert and Sullivan's farcical take on feudal Japan is given a lavish staging in this production, recorded during a performance of a 1990 adaptation by the Australian Opera. Featuring Robert Eddie, Peter Cousens, and Heather Begg, this staging of The Mikado was directed by Christopher Renshaw, with Andrew Greene conducting The Elizabethan Sydney Orchestra. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
