The Mikado

Everyone loves The Mikado, probably the most popular of Gilbert and Sullivan's operettas. With lovely bright costumes and set, witty lyrics and catchy tunes, The Mikado is fun for all involved.

Larger casts can easily add extra chorus in brightly coloured kimonos and Chinese style hats.

We so enjoyed costuming a set of wonderful Chinese style costumes for Buckingham Choral's production.

The three little maids looked wonderful in long floral kimonos with large padded sash and geisha style wigs.

The formidable High executioner wore black robes and wielded a large axe, Nanky Poo wore a poor wrap around tunic and the emperor looked majestic in some rich robes with gold accessories.

All of these costumes are available for hire at reasonable rates and we also have costumes for The Gondoliers, Iolanthe, Princess Ida and the Pirates of Penzance.

Call us now at Admiral Costumes on 01908 372504 to book the costumes that you need.

Here are some lovely images from Buckingham Choral
