Since its premiere in 1885, The Mikado has become one of the most-performed pieces of musical theater ever. As with many Gilbert & Sullivan operettas, it satirizes Victorian Britain’s politics and its aristocracy. In The Mikado, G & S camouflaged their criticisms by setting the story in Japan. Look for the duo’s typical wordplay, memorable tunes and endearing characters. Capital City Opera, meanwhile, promises a contemporary staging that includes anime characters, iPhones and set design.
