Details

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. Company Leeds Gilbert and Sullivan Society. Director Michael Williamson. Producer John Haywood.
