Opera in the Park: The Mikado

Posted: August 21, 2010 in Updates

In March 2010 I tackled another production of Opera in the Park with the WA Opera Company.  As one of the largest yearly free events in Perth, it’s always an exciting night under the stars!  This year I directed a semi-staged production of The Mikado, a Gilbert & Sullivan classic, to the delight of a music loving crowd.

The cast included a number of young artists from the company as well as a few seasoned professionals and the WASO orchestra was conducted by David Wickham.  Crowd favourites such as “Three Little Maids from School” and “Here’s a how-de-do” were highlights of the evening.

The event took place in Supreme Court Gardens in Perth’s CBD and was for a first time simulcast to Bunbury and Geraldton!  Check out the online review here.

As always it was a joy to work with the WA Opera Company and I look forward to our next project together.
