The Mikado is not one of the faster paced Gilbert & Sullivan light operas. The 3 hour performance in 2 acts was well sung, but difficult to hear the myriad of political asides.

We've all seen and enjoyed many amateur performances of The Mikado,

Performance was as it should be. All actors sang and performed well. Seats were good, too. No problem hearing from rear orchestra. Hard to see details of faces though. Unfortunately, while nothing to do with Gold Star or Filene Center,...continued

Start typing to review your experience...Well done performance and a lot of fun. However, it was very difficult to understand the women's words. Maybe surtitles are in order?

Horrible production, actors fluffed lines, kept dropping things, rediculous set. Wolf Trap is always fun, but we left during intermission.

A wonderful evening and performance of the Mikado. The NY Gilbert & Sullivan players were first class. Great voices, great sets, wonderful physical comedy, and cute lyrical updates to make it funnier.
