This is a fun Canadian version of the Mikado.
Several "in" Canadian jokes.
Eg. "The Smoking Separatist"
The is escapism entertainment at it best.

A true visual treat for all musical theatre audiences.. and a must for G&S fans....
the wit and irreverance originally scripted by Gilbert and Sullivan, is brought to life with this superb production by the Strafford Festival and CBC...
That I also got to witness the performance of a dear friend as Pish-Tush in this production was a double treat...

This is an absolutely fantastic musical! I was lucky enough to see The Mikado with this cast on stage in Stratford, Ontario back in 1982 and it has richly informed many aspects of my life ever since. I would love to see a hi-def remaster of this production, but until such time I am very happy to have it on DVD!

Recording was originally on VHS which limits the quality. Some songs are dubbed. (which makes the sound quality better than they would have otherwise been).

I like the Mikado and I like this performance. It's the only Stratford Mikado available on video - so I wanted to own it.

Format: DVD
My seven year old daughter has watched this DVD about twenty five times, so the performance is etched in my brain.
It consists of fine, athletic acting and good singing, with fairly minimal sets. The orchestration has been tarted up, as some have noted, but it's not too bad. Richard MacMillan's entertaining Pooh-Bah sticks in the mind particularly, as does Gidon Saks' maniacal Mikado.
There are a few Canadian references which are fast becoming too topical even for natives of the North: wage and price controls ("six and five"), former Prime Minister Mulroney's pretty wife Mila (left off the little list), and even a brief digital salute to Pierre Trudeau from the irrepressible Pooh-Bah.
The CBC's production values are less than stunning. You get mediocre sound, no libretto, and the same tourist promotion video that is seen on other DVD's in the Stratford set. However, the wit and polish of the performance make up for any deficiencies.
Overall, a very worthwhile buy for anyone except a real sourpuss, and enjoyable even after the twenty fifth viewing.

I have never seen the Mikado performed before and after seeing this version any other would be disapointing. I enjoyed all the principal players, especially Richard McMillan ,Eric Donkin, Henry Ingram and Allan Stewart-Coates. Pooh-Bah was hilarious and Marie Baron's singing was excellent. I share it with my friends and watch it many, many times. I loved it!

This is a wonderful Mikado from all counts. This production was a great success and it's easy to see why.The only drawback is the "Little List" Canadian update but this is minor. Everyone shines, especially Katisha and Pooh-Bah. What a wonderful way to kill two hours amd what a happy feeling when it is finished.
