New York City
Imagine a world where flirting is a capital crime – and the executioner is the first in line to be punished! That’s exactly what happens in this hugely popular operetta, widely considered to be the pinnacle of Gilbert and Sullivan’s collaboration. In the Japanese town of Titipu, everything goes topsy-turvy when a high school maiden, a wandering minstrel, and a lord high executioner find themselves in a love triangle. The ensuing complications are so outrageous, only the emperor himself can sort it all out!
