Jazz legend Duke Ellington enjoyed a career in music that spanned more than 50 years. In that time, "The Duke" built up a body of work featuring some of the most celebrated songs of all time, including "Take the 'A' Train," "It Don't Mean a Thing (If It Ain't Got That Swing)" and "In a Sentimental Mood." Winner of two Tony Awards, Sophisticated Ladies is a stylish retrospective of Ellington's musical legacy that perfectly recreates his big band sound. Featuring all of his most famous numbers, this irresistible song-and-dance spectacular features the Atlanta Lyric Orchestra and some of the area's most talented performers. Learn More

Quotes & Highlights
- Learn more about The Mikado from the in-depth information at the Gilbert & Sullivan Archive online.
Gilbert and Sullivan are the undisputed masters of comic operetta and the proud parents of the modern musical. That their works are more in demand today than when they were created over a century ago is ample proof of their lasting brilliance. The hapless lovers in The Mikado are mercilessly buffeted by social restrictions, legal inconsistencies, judicial inequities, government stupidities, and that’s just the first act! Poor dears – it would be absolutely tragic if it weren’t so hysterically funny.
About the Ticket Supplier: Atlanta Lyric Theatre
Atlanta Lyric Theatre, Atlanta's only local professional musical theater company, was formed in 1980 by Tedi and Robert Langdon and Sally Knap as the Southeastern Savoyards, a repertory theatre company dedicated to presenting the works of Gilbert and Sullivan. The company's first production, Gilbert & Sullivan's The Mikado, was performed at Emory University in December 1980. Later, the company's productions were moved to the Marist School, the 14th Street Playhouse, Center Stage Theater, and then to the Robert Ferst Center for the Arts on the campus of Georgia Tech where the company's main stage performances were produced for seventeen seasons.
