Gilbert & Sullivan: The Mikado / Opera Australia - Butel, Breen, Fiebig, Fyfe

Album Summary

>Sullivan, Arthur : Mikado
Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

The Mikado is perhaps the most widely-loved and hilarious of Gilbert and Sullivan's Savoy Operas. With a fabulous cast astutely directed by Stuart Maunder, this comic operetta sparkles from beginning to end. Mitchell Butel's Ko-Ko is priceless, and his singing superb. Kanen Breen portrays Nanki-Poo as delightfully happy and positive, even when about to lose his head, while Jacqueline Dark brings compelling depth to the wicked Katisha. Taryn Fiebig is the lovely Yum-Yum, and Warwick Fyfe the ludicrous, overworked and severe Pooh-Bah. The music is pure joy, with an amazing performance drawn from Orchestra Victoria by the superb conductor Brian Castles-Onion.
