The Mikado

Date: 19th Aug 2017

Location: Loretto Lawn, Musselburgh Racecourse

Time: 19:00 - 21:00

In the town of Titipu flirting has been made illegal. The penalty, by order of The Mikado, is death.

Mikado 200x150

But what would happen if anyone should dare to tell the Mikado that an execution had taken place when in fact it hadn’t?

Gilbert & Sullivan’s wry satire of the way lies can be twisted into truths is more blisteringly relevant than perhaps ever before! Illyria presents a summer opera to leave a smile on your face and a song in your heart, performed outdoors on the Loretto Lawn at Musselburgh Racecourse.

This is a production by Illyria: an Equity Outdoor Touring Guidelines compliant company.
