Gilbert & Sullivan's The Mikado at Wolf Trap
$6 - $21*
$12 - $42
The Mikado is one of Gilbert and Sullivan's most-loved works, and one of the most popular operettas in the English language. Set in the fictional Japanese town of Titipu (in which flirting is a capital offense), The Mikado tells the story of wandering minstrel Nanki-Poo, who falls in love with the fair Yum-Yum, who happens to be engaged to the town's newly appointed Lord High Executioner. A deliciously intelligent satire, the Japanese setting allowed Gilbert and Sullivan to slyly mask their commentary on contemporary British society. This classic and surprisingly modern tale of star-crossed lovers features the beloved tunes "Three Little Maids From School Are We" and "A Wand'ring Minstrel I." It's produced by the New York Gilbert and Sullivan Players. Led by artistic director Albert Bergeret, this famed troupe has delighted audiences since 1974 as "the leading custodian of the G&S classics" (New York magazine).
