Oye! What's On

The Mikado at Miles Memorial Playhouse (Santa Monica, CA)

Gilbert & Sullivan's The Mikado From Pacific Opera Project

Miles Memorial Playhouse (Santa Monica, CA)

"The Mikado""The Mikado"

The Mikado is one of Gilbert and Sullivan's most accomplished and entertaining works, and remains one of the most popular operettas in the English language. Set in the fictional Japanese town of Titipu, in which flirting is a capital offense, The Mikado tells the story of a wandering minstrel who falls in love with the fair Yum-Yum, who just so happens to be engaged to the town's newly appointed Lord High Executioner. A deliciously intelligent satire, the Japanese setting allowed Gilbert and Sullivan to slyly mask their commentary on contemporary British society. The show features the beloved tunes "Three Little Maids From School Are We," "A Wand'ring Minstrel I" and the crowd-pleasing "As Some Day It May Happen (I've Got a Little List)." Pacific Opera Project's colorful reimagining of this surprisingly modern tale of star-crossed lovers updates the traditional silk kimonos of ancient Japan with vibrant Harajuku fashions, a wild, punky mix of colors and styles.
