One of the most frequently produced musical theatre pieces in history, The Mikado is a comic opera in two acts, with music by Arthur Sullivan and libretto by W.S. Gilbert. Debuted by the D'Oyly Carte Opera Company at the Savoy Theatre in London on March 14, 1885, The Mikado was Gilbert and Sullivan's ninth collaborative work. Set in Japan, the opera explores the exotic, macabre, and humorous while satirizing British politics and institutions in the fictionalized foreign town of Titipu.
This special one-night performance features Victoria Clark, Chuck Cooper, Jason Danieley, Christopher Fitzgerald, Amy Justman, Kelli O'Hara, Lauren Worsham, and the American Symphony Orchestra, directed and conducted by Ted Sperling.
