A comic opera in two acts, The Mikado is undoubtedly one of the most popular pieces of musical theatre of all time by the renowned team of Gilbert and Sullivan (G&S).
For decades, a production of G&S’s satirical opera could be seen somewhere in the English speaking world every day of the year. It's libretto has found its way into our language, with expressions such as the grand Pooh-Bah and “Let the punishment fit the crime.” Several films have been made of or about the work, including Mike Leigh’s 1999 film Topsy-Turvy, which presented an intimate portrait of the characters of Sir W.S. Gilbert, Sir Arthur Sullivan, and the repertory cast of the original D’Oyly Carte Opera Company, following G&S's inspiration and development of the very first Mikado production.
