The Mikado with Newbury Operatic Society

In October 2010 Newbury Operatic Society performed The Mikado written by Gilbert and Sullivan.  We were lucky enough to be the photographers for this wonderful performance in Newbury.  Audiences enjoyed a traditional rendition with a few topical jokes thrown in.  These including coalition politicans, errant bankers, X Factor references and hints at Katie Price's assets!  The Mikado is a mix of wonderful music by Arthur Sullivan and libretto by W.S Gilbert. Personally I found the humour quite strange though sharp and witty (as are most Gilbert and Sullivan operas). 

Being the photographer for a show I had never seen I thought the principles and chorus did a fantastic job, the costumes were breath taking and the singing was outstanding.
