Here the apprentice Pirate Frederic plays hide and seek with Peep-Bo, the Major-General leads a chorus of Pomp and Circumstance with teenage geisha girls, and the Lord High Executioner retires to a life of serenity with the pirate’s maid Ruth who would cook, clean and polish his axe every evening. Experience the fun, frivolity and laughter of the original with today’s deal: $55 for an A or B reserve seat to Opera Australia’s The Mikado next Wednesday or Thursday night at the Arts Centre, Melbourne (up to $115 value).

Culture connoisseurs and casual curiosities will dust off the kimono in eager anticipation of cherishing one of the great operettas, presented by this premiere performing arts company at the Arts Centre on Southbank. The Mikado is a light-hearted piece of utter merriment performed to perfection in this glittering Opera Australia production. Swoon over the wandering minstrel Nanki-Poo, gasp at the Lord High Executioner and roar with laughter at the three little maids, Yum-Yum, Peep-Bo and Pitti-Sing. Ultimately, anguish over the Mikado’s decree that an execution must take place; luckily audience members receive automatic amnesty. The famous Gilbert and Sullivan songs leave protagonists incapable of resisting toe-taps, audible humming and flicking ornamental silk fans to the infectious beat.    

The production is based on an original by Christopher Renshaw and is directed by internationally-acclaimed theatre aficionado Stuart Maunder. Brian Castles-Onion is in charge of waiving the baton before his orchestra. Comic genius, direct from fraternising with playful puppets on Avenue Q, Mitchell Butel plays the role of Lord High Executioner. The production is performed in English with English surtitles and runs for two hours and 40 minutes including one 20-minute interval. To redeem the voucher Melbournian Grouponites should call the Opera Australia Box Office on 03 9685 3700, during standard work hours, 9am-5pm, to organise tickets. Please quote the unique voucher code when booking and tell the friendly staff that you’re calling from Stardeals Groupon.
