ENO The Mikado
The English National Opera returns to Roseville Cinema's in 2016 with three world class performances, filmed live for cinema audiences form the London Coliseum. Following a successful 2015 season we are delighted to announced two brilliant new productions from the prestigious English National Opera (ENO) set to hit the big screen in 2016 - Rossini’s THE BARBER OF SEVILLE and Gilbert & Sullivan's THE MIKADO. The Mikado - Set in an ever-so English 1930s seaside hotel, Jonathan Miller’s Marx Brothers-inspired song-and-dance Mikado is a popular hit with audiences of all ages. The combination of Gilbert’s virtuosic wit, Sullivan’s memorable melodies and Miller’s hilarious antics is irresistible. Nanki-Poo loves Yum-Yum. Just one snag. She's betrothed to Ko-Ko, the new Lord High Executioner. And Ko-Ko needs to find someone to execute – chop chop! Otherwise, it's his own neck on the block. Maybe Ko-Ko and Nanki-Poo can come to some arrangement… without anyone losing their head?
