Stocked with melodies that will keep swirling through your brain for days, The Mikado is a light-hearted romp about beheading, capital punishment, forced suicide, and the ridiculous nature of government regulations. No wonder it is Gilbert and Sullivan's most beloved and well-known opera. Written with a distinctly British sense of humor, and clearly a predecessor to the well-known twentieth century comic styling of Monty Python, The Mikado carries a preposterous story to its happy conclusion with a highly memorable score as its companion.
