Social Distancing Friendly Picnic Concert at Stansted Park

Gilbert & Sullivan’s Magical Masterpiece The Mikado performed by Opera Anywhere

Enjoy a great night of opera at this spacious, ‘socially distance’ friendly open-air venue. Set in a mythical Japan, the Mikado follows the story of Ko-Ko, a cheap tailor, who has been appointed Lord High Executioner and must find someone to execute before the arrival of the ruling Mikado. He lights upon Nanki-Poo, a strolling minstrel who loves the beautiful Yum-Yum. But Yum-Yum is also loved by Ko-Ko, and Nanki-Poo, seeing no hope for his love, considers suicide. Ko-Ko offers to solve both their problems by executing Nanki-Poo, and an agreement is reached whereby Ko-Ko will allow Nanki-Poo to marry Yum-Yum for one month, at the end of which Nanki-Poo will be executed, in time for the arrival of the Mikado. But what Ko-Ko doesn’t know is that Nanki-Poo is the son of the Mikado and has run away to avoid a betrothal to an old harridan named Katisha. The arrival of the Mikado brings all the threads of the tale together.

Social distancing rules and measures will be in place to ensure a safe and enjoyable event at this spacious open-air venue. We will release further updates via email regarding the specifics of all of the measures to keep you safe in due course.
