  • More details on this film at the Internet Movie Database


Mike Leigh's story of William Gilbert and Sir Arthur Sullivan staging the first performance of The Mikado, this is a beautiful period drama, a musical extravaganza and an intelligent critique Victorian values. We are treated to a highly comic glimpse of the theatre company's lives, excerpts from the G&S operettas, and Oscar-winning costume and make-up, a cinematic treat.
