Set in the Japanese town of Titipu, The Mikado follows the adventures of a wandering minstrel, Nanki-Poo; his ward, Yum-Yum; The Lord High Executioner, Ko-Ko; and The Lord High Everything Else, Pooh-Bah. The show is a witty satire of the British political system featuring excellent caricatures, an ingeniously convoluted plot and some of Sullivan's best musical writing. Not only is The Mikado the most performed of all of Gilbert and Sullivan's works, it is one of the most frequently played pieces of musical theatre in history.
