The Mikado in Oxford

Opera Anywhere presents The Mikado by Gilbert & Sullivan
“Designed and directed by Paula Chitty”

A review by Nicholas Newman

Last Sunday afternoon (9 September, 2012), Opera Anywhere brought its 2012 production of Gilbert and Sullivan comic opera to Oxford. Despite the unusual summer heat, and the small team of players, the performance was excellent. The atmosphere was like a good garden party, I was amazed how the performers managed to gamble across the stage and amongst the audience seated in the Greek style open air amphitheatre, atop the Said Business School. At times the wind blew some of the props out of position and at times it was difficult to hear the music. Even so despite these minor technical hitches, it did not stop enjoyment of this fun afternoon.
