Show Description:
More than 130 years after its premiere, The Mikado - in the timelessness of its characters and situations, its witty lyrics, and succession of engaging tunes - remains a wonder of lyric theatre. Tailor Ko-Ko, condemned to death for flirting, is reprieved and appointed Lord High Executioner of Titipu. He is betrothed to his ward Yum-Yum, but she has fallen in love with the Mikado's son Nanki-Poo. Displeased with the lack of executions in Titipu, the Mikado orders that the situation be rectified. Nanki-Poo, distraught because he cannot marry Yum-Yum, agrees to be executed in a month, provided that he can marry her in the meantime. When the Mikado sees Nanki-Poo's name on Ko-Ko's falsified execution affidavit, he condemns Ko-Ko to death for compassing the death of the heir-apparent. "A Wand'ring Minstrel I," "I've Got a Little List," "Three Little Maids from School," "The Flowers that Bloom in the Spring," and "Tit-Willow" are but a few of the song gems that have made this the most popular of the G&S shows.
