2013-2014 Season: The Mikado!

The Mikado is one of Gilbert and Sullivan’s most popular operas!

Story:
Nanki-Poo, the son of The Mikado, disguises himself as a wandering musician in order to avoid marriage from the elderly Katisha. In the town of Titpu, he falls in love with the beautiful Yum-Yum, but the two are prevented from marrying by Ko-Ko, Yum-Yum’s guardian and Lord High Executioner. Further chaos ensues as The Mikado who, struck by the fact that no one has been beheaded in Titipu for a year, threatens to abolish the office of Lord High Executioner unless somebody is executed within a month. In this comic opera, Gilbert and Sullivan poke fun at British culture and satirize the Victorian obession with the Orient.
