|The vocal program at The School of Music, UWA Presents "The Mikado - in absentia"
What happens when you have a show needing a chorus of men and five major male leads, but only five men and not a tenor in sight, too many women who are all suitable to sing the two major women leads, no budget, no sets, no props, a bare music auditorium and a grand piano?
Answer. UWA Vocal Students condensed version of Gilbert & Sullivan's The Mikado.
Arguably the most popular Gilbert & Sullivan opera of all time, this is a Mikado with a difference. Watch as the Mikado never appears. Be stunned at the multi-personalities of Yum Yum, Nanki Poo, as you've never seen him before, Pooh Bah from Glasgow, and Katisha "the cougar". Be amazed at how great the men's chorus sounds ... with women. Look out for the next Lord High Executioner - will it be you?
Witty dialogue, new narration, stunning music, and fresh and eager young voices. Why haven't you booked your seat already?
A Mikado not to be missed.
