Just over 125 years after its initial run, Gilbert and Sullivan's most successful operetta, The Mikado, is currently being staged at English National Opera in Jonathan Miller's much-loved production, first premiered at the London Coliseum in 1986.

Conducted by David Parry, the cast includes Richard Suart, who celebrates his 25th anniversary playing the role of Ko-Ko, Robert Murray as Nanki-Poo, Mary Bevan as Yum-Yum and Donald Maxwell as Pooh-Bah.

There are six remaining performances throughout January. See the ENO website for details.

Gramophone's Antony Craig saw the production in December 2012 - to read his review, visit his Mikado blog.
