The Mikado (emperor of Japan), a two-act comic operetta, is 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, but she is betrothed to her guardian Ko-Ko. Meanwhile, Ko-Ko is condemned to death for flirting.Therefore, he vows to find a substitute before the arrival of the Mikado. He persuades Nanki-Poo to be the victim, on condition that Nanki-Poo can marry Yum-Yum and enjoy one month of wedded bliss, only to be beheaded after the fleeting union. But what Ko-Ko doesn’t know is that Nanki-Poo is the son of the Mikado……
Will Nanki-Poo and Ko-Ko manage to come to an arrangement that doesn’t involve anyone losing their head?
