Miami Dade College Wolfson Campus Opera Theatre Presents The Mikado April 16 & 17
Miami, April 3, 2014 -
The Miami Dade College (MDC) Wolfson Campus Department of Arts & Philosophy, Opera/Musical Theatre Ensemble will present a performance of the comedic opera, The Mikado, at 7 p.m., Wednesday and Thursday, April 16 and 17.
With music by W. S. Gilbert and libretto by Sir Arthur Sullivan, The Mikado is set in the Japanese town of Titipu, where the cheap tailor Ko-Ko, since being appointed Lord High Executioner, hasn’t executed anyone or anything. His ward, Yum-Yum, has fallen in love with a traveling musician, Nanki-Poo, who is actually the Mikado’s (Emperor’s) son, and has escaped in order to avoid having to marry Katisha, the Mikado’s daughter-in-law elect. The Mikado, however, soon takes notice of the lack of executions in Titipu and decrees that if no executions take place within the time of one month, the city will be reduced to the status of a village. But not all goes as planned as further complications arise in this witty satire on politics and human relationships.
