Opera Anywhere : ‘The Mikado’

The Mikado presents a tangled web of love.

Nanki-Poo, the son of the Mikado, flees in search of his true love, YumYum, to avoid marrying a much older suitor.

Yum-Yum, however, is betrothed to Ko-Ko, the Lord High Executioner, against her will.

Things, as you can see, are complicated!

But can everything be righted before someone loses their head?

Expect high jinx, lots of energy and clever wordplay as all is revealed.

The Mikado has delighted audiences for more than a century opening initially at the Savoy Theatreon 14 March 1885.

It ran for 672 nights and catapulted both Gilbert & Sullivan to the height of their creative geniuses.
