Event
The Mikado

In the town of Titipu flirting has been made illegal.  The penalty, by order of The Mikado, is death.  Too bad then that the main culprit is the Lord High Executioner Ko-Ko, who wishes to marry his beautiful young ward Yum-Yum, and who has no intention of executing himself.  Can the itinerant musician Nanki-Poo be persuaded to be executed in his place? And what would happen if anyone should dare to tell the Mikado that an execution had taken place when in fact it hadn’t…?

Gilbert & Sullivan’s wry comic opera is set in Japan, but its satire of the ways a lie can be twisted into a truth is more blisteringly relevant today than perhaps ever before!  Performed by a cast of 6 actor/singers accompanied by a musical director on keyboards, it gets the complete Illyria treatment.  Despite the reduction in scale not a single word from WS Gilbert's libretto is cut, nor a single note or harmony from Sir Arthur Sullivan's score unsung.
