Yum Yum

Mikado at the Coliseum yesterday evening, for the last night of the latest (14th!) rerun of Jonathan Miller’s production from the 1980s.
The translation to an England that is all hotel lobby, and the gargantuan, topsy-turvy, creamy white set, still work to show up just how much Gilbert really, really wasn’t talking about Japan.
A small point. I really appreciated the surtitles, as – as with most G&S – it’s important to keep track of the libretto.
So good.
