About the Show:

The Mikado is one of the most famous and best loved Gilbert & Sullivan’s operettas. Falling somewhere between an opera and a musical, this comic piece is a witty and satirical tale of social mores and a highly entertaining theatrical presentation. Operettas tend to be shorter and less complex than traditional opera, and as such are very accessible to a broad audience, and those new to the operatic art form.

Lyric Opera Ireland has been producing fully staged opera in Ireland for over 20 years. Established in Kilkenny in 1994 by Vivian Coates as a young opera company bringing popular opera to Irish audiences at affordable prices, it has grown from single performances of semi staged works to main scale productions in Dublin, Belfast and Wexford. Lyric Opera partners with many artistic collaborators, including the RTE Concert Orchestra, Ballet Ireland, Wexford Festival Opera, the Gaiety Theatre, National Opera House and the National Concert Hall.
