Notes and Editorial Reviews

D'Oyly Carte Opera, 1966 film. Starring Valerie Masterson, Philip Potter, Donald Adams, and John Reed, with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra conducted by Isidore Godfrey. Color. VHS

"This exquisitely arch film of The Mikado will delight diehard Savoyards as well as newcomers." "John Reed's Ko-Ko has probably never been bettered." "Every word impeccably uttered, and playful mockery underlying everything." Classical Pulse April 1995
"Donald Adams is a magnificent Mikado." BBC Music Magazine
