We thoroughly enjoyed this performance of Mikado, our first Gilbert and Sullivan in many years. The beauty of the music and the delightful humor were as rewarding as ever.

Description

Founded in 1970 by noted British Gilbert and Sullivan scholar and artist Richard Sheldon, the company has enjoyed a remarkable rise to fame. Known for the authentic style of its productions, the company is constantly winning new audiences through its nationwide tours and is acclaimed as the foremost Gilbert and Sullivan touring repertory company in the country.

A deliciously intelligent satire of British Society at the time of its creation, The Mikado premiered at London’s Savoy Theatre in 1885. Its Japanese setting allowed Gilbert and Sullivan to mask their commentary on British society in a spectacularly clever fashion. The most celebrated Gilbert & Sullivan opera, Opera a la Carte’s The Mikado is a musical journey back to the 1800s.
