Presented by the Diamond Valley Singers with the Eltham Orchestras.
Since its premiere in 1885 at the Savoy Theatre in London, The Mikado has become one of the most-performed pieces of musical theatre in history. As with many of Gilbert and Sullivan’s productions, the show satirizes aspects of Victorian Britain’s politics and aristocracy.
Nanki-Poo, the son of the Mikado, has fled in disguise to avoid marrying a much older suitor, and to find and marry his own beloved, the beautiful Yum-Yum the ward of Ko-Ko, and has become betrothed to him against her will. As usual in Gilbert’s imaginative plots, the tangled web unravels, and everyone lives happily ever after. This complex satire is characterized by the clever wordplay, memorable tunes, and endearing characters that have allowed Gilbert and Sullivan’s popularity with audiences to endure for well over a century.
