- Program Description
Beheadings, live burials, forced exiles, desperate betrothals and secret love pacts are only a few of the perfectly hum-drum situations that get a deliciously whimsical twist in Gilbert and Sullivan’s celebrated operetta, “The Mikado.” Sharing the stage with Nanki-Poo, Yum-Yum, Ko-Ko and Pooh-Bah, William Conrad stars in this witty satire of all things English, set in Japan.
