A good Mikado, 18 December 2002
Author: emurray-2

This is a fine Mikado with modern attire instead of the Japanese.

Eric Idle hams it up and is rather good.

But, personally, I much prefer the 1982 version seen on television which has a stellar singing cast with the Ambrosian Opera Chorus and the London Symphony Orchestra led by Alexander Faris. The costumes appear to be authentic and set the mood for this great satire.

You will enjoy the Eric Idle production very much.
