Opera or Operetta

Perhaps Gilbert and Sullivan's most popular and most performed operetta, this Japanese inspired story has some of the most memorable of their songs including; 'Three Little Maids from School', 'I've got a Little List', 'A Wandering Minstrel' and 'A Most Humane Mikado'. Nanki-Poo, the son of the Mikado, arrives in disguise in the town of Titipu to escape his betrothal to the rather aged Katisha. Here, he falls in love with Yum-Yum, the reluctant fiancee of Ko-Ko the executioner (who doesn't execute people). Meanwhile, the Mikado comes to visit Pooh-Bah, the spiv of a town mayor, seeking some public executions and Katisha arrives seeking her betrothed ... plans are uregently required to make everyone happy and nobody headless.


Music: A.Sullivan
Lyrics: W.S.Gilbert
