Opera Hong Kong Children Chorus Annual Concert 2021
The Mikado

OCT 2021


According to the latest announcement of social restriction measures by the government, audiences are prohibited from entering performance venues with immediate effect. Foreseeing the measure would not ease away in near future, all our preparation work for The Mikado, originally scheduled on April 24-25 2021 at the Theatre of Sai Wan Ho Civic Centre, will be seriously affected. Opera Hong Kong Children Chorus has no choice but to postpone the performance to October 2021 tentatively. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience this may have caused. Thank you for your understanding. Please stay safe and look forward to seeing you again in October 2021.

The Mikado (emperor of Japan) is a two-act comic operetta which is also one of the most famous and best-loved of Gilbert and Sullivan’s works. The story revolves around the young prince Nanki-Poo who arrives in Titipu. Disguised as a travelling musician, he falls for the beautiful Yum-Yum who is betrothed to her guardian Ko-Ko. Ko-Ko is condemned to death for flirting. Ko-Ko vows to find a substitute before the arrival of the Mikado. He persuades Nanki-Poo to be the substitute, and let him marry Yum-Yum for one month, at the end of which Nanki-Poo will be beheaded. But what Ko-Ko doesn’t know is that Nanki-Poo is the son of the Mikado……
