The Mikado was performed in Woodstock at St Mary Magdalene's by the professional theatre group Opera Anywhere on Friday 15th June 7.30pm, raising over £1,000 in support of the church.
Set in Japan, The Mikado presents a tangled web of love. Nanki-Poo, the son of the Mikado, flees in search of his true love, YumYum, to avoid marrying a much older suitor. Yum-Yum, however, is betrothed to Ko-Ko, the Lord High Executioner, against her will. Things, as you can see, are complicated! But can everything be righted before someone loses their head? Expect high jinx, lots of energy and clever wordplay as all is revealed.
