The Mikado

1987 Rated NR 2hr 10m

Monty Python's Eric Idle stars as tailor-turned-executioner Ko-Ko in Jonathan Miller's 1987 production of Gilbert and Sullivan's lively opera. Featuring the English National Opera, this hilarious staging replaces the original setting of ancient Japan with a 1930s British seaside resort. Idle's comic genius shines through as the dedicated decapitator Ko-Ko comes up with a scheme to meet his quota of beheadings and win the delectable Yum-Yum.
