The Mikado at Drum Castle
Event dates: Sunday 13 August, 2017
Music, Dance and Theatre | Outdoors
Illyria stages an open-air performance of the Gilbert and Sullivan classic opera 'The Mikado' at The National Trust for Scotland’s Drum Castle, near Banchory.
Performed by a cast of 6 actor-singers accompanied by a musical director on keyboards, it is produced on a stage boasting a strikingly large and authentic Japanese torii gate. Despite the reduction in scale not a word from WS Gilbert's libretto is cut, nor a single note or harmony from Sir Arthur Sullivan's score unsung.
Running time is approximately two hours including an interval and spectators should wear appropriate outdoor wear, provide their own seating and are welcome to bring a picnic supper, with hot drinks and snacks available from the tea tent both pre-performance and during the interval.
Prices: £17.50 for adults, £15.00 concession and £62.00 for families (2+2)
