Show Details

Flirting is outlawed!  In the fantastical land of “Titipu,” the Mikado makes a law.  But when his own son falls for the delightful Yum-Yum, who can carry out the execution decreed as punishment for the crime?  THE MIKADO is a pointed satire of the manners, politics, and institutions of Victorian era Britain; it deals comically and absurdly with pompous officials, prudish etiquette, and other foolishness. Delightful and instantly recognizable, the music of THE MIKADO features some of G&S’ best work.

Performed in English with English supertitles

Director: Daniel Pelzig

The Mikado of Japan: Peter Strummer 
Nanki-Poo: Daniel Shirley
