The Mikado remains the most popular Savoy Opera. The work has been translated into numerous languages and is one of the most frequently played musical theatre pieces in history.
Setting the opera in Japan, an exotic locale far away from Britain, allowed Gilbert to satirise British politics and institutions more freely by disguising them as Japanese. "The Mikado" presents a wonderfully entertaining and colourful mix of comedy and music.
