  • "Mike Leigh directs this comic look at one of light opera's most famous creative partnerships. In 1880s London, the writing team of William Gilbert (Jim Broadbent) and Arthur Sullivan (Allan Corduner) looks set to split after the comparative failure of their latest collaboration, 'Princess Ida'. Sullivan is keen to prove himself as a serious composer, feeling that Gilbert's writing has become too formulaic. However, when Gilbert's wife, Kitty (Lesley Manville), takes him to an exhibition of Japanese culture, his imagination is fired, and he enthusiastically contacts Sullivan with ideas for a new project."

  • "Les opérettes du tandem Gilbert et Sullivan n'ont jamais connu d'échec jusqu'à ce jour de 1884 où Princess Ida reçoit un accueil très décevant. Alors que le compositeur Sullivan ne rêve que de musique sérieuse et pense abandonner l'opérette, Gilbert se creuse les méninges pour satisfaire leur commanditaire avec une nouvelle oeuvre. Par contrat, Sullivan met en musique "The Mikado", une oeuvre qu'il définit comme "sans queue ni tête" (topsy turvy), inspirée par une exposition japonaise en vogue. Ce brillant succès relancera leur carrière."
