Play Screener  Contact Sales  Collection: English National Opera

Recorded live at the London Coliseum, this has become, for many, the definitive production of this much-loved Gilbert and Sullivan comic opera. 

Full of high-kicking chorus lines, satirical touches and a wonderfully elegant score this is wonderful production not to be missed.

It tells the tale of Nanki-Poo and his love for Yum Yum. There’s just one snag, she’s betrothed to Ko-Ko, the new Lord High Executioner. And he needs someone to execute otherwise it’s his own head on the block. Perhaps Ko-Ko and Nanki-Poo can come to some arrangement, without anyone losing their head?
