The Mikado was first performed at London’s Savoy Theatre in 1885 and ran longer in its initial run than any other Gilbert & Sullivan opera. This New York Gilbert & Sullivan Players’ production is in the traditional mold, combining a modern playfulness with a respect for the creators’ original intent. A full orchestra brings to life Sullivan’s own evocative orchestration, and the legit singing of the company’s outstanding performers brings lushness to the vocal lines. Come join the three little maids from school; a wandering minstrel; the Lord High Executioner; and of course, the Mikado himself for a memorable evening of music and fun.
