Wilton’s Music Hall has revealed its Summer Season for 2023.
The Summer season will open with Regan De Wynter Williams all-male production of Gilbert and Sullivan’s The Mikado, running from 7 June to 1 July. The Mikado is set in a far-off land called Titipu, with flirting banned on pain of death and poking fun at British institutions throughout, this uniquely humorous show is sure to delight.
Opera della Luna will present Sweeney Todd – The Victorian Melodrama (25-29 April 2023) which brings a gothic allure to the Fiend of Fleet Street with this new operatic production including a 10-strong orchestra. Followed by National Opera Studio and Opera North who present Cautionary Tales (2-3 May 2023) breathing fresh life into opera with contemporary scenes covering climate change, gender identity and animal rights from some of the most celebrated contemporary operatic composers.
Express G&S runs from 15-18 August 2023 and is a side-splitting murder mystery spoof, featuring every single Gilbert and Sullivan opera in 75 minutes of madcap tomfoolery
