4.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Recording, Feb. 22 2004
This review is from: Gilbert and Sullivan: The Mikado (Audio CD)
This recording overall is an excellent rendition of the classic Gilbert & Sullivan operetta, "The Mikado". All the voices are stunning, the orchestra is crisp and clean and doesn't overpower the voices, and it's clear the actors/singers are having fun with it. Of course D'oyly Carte Opera Company only does Gilbert & Sullivan so it ought to be good. Most impressive are Nanki-Poo, Ko-Ko, and Katisha. Some of the Tempos ("I Am So Proud" in particular) are a little slow. Overall it is very well done; notquite as good as the Stratford Festival's version from the '80's, but as that is only available on DVD, this is a great way to listen to this fantastic masterpiece!
