Telarc presents Sir Charles Mackerras conducting an all-British cast of singers in the complete score of The Mikado. The singers assembled here have distinguished careers both in Great Britain and internationally, with a wealth of experience performing the great English repertoire both on stage and in recordings. In particular, bass Donald Adams, performing as the Mikado of Japan, was Principal Bass with the D'Oyly Carte company for fifteen years, and was co-founder and actor-manager of Gilbert and Sullivan for All. Richard Suart, baritone, performing as Ko-Ko, specializes in Gilbert and Sullivan "patter" roles and has also been affiliated with the D'Oyly Carte. On May 8, 1884, Gilbert wrote to Sullivan to propose the story, and Sullivan accepted it sight unseen. At the work's premiere, nearly a year later, it enjoyed a brilliant success. (Sullivan notes in his diary three encores for "Three Little Maids" and seven encores for "The Flowers that Bloom in the Spring".) It has remained one of their most popular works for over a century. A must for all Savoyards!
