Carl Rosa Opera’s new production of “The Mikado, ” which includes a live orchestra, is a faithful re-creation of the original authorized Savoy production of 1885. This amusing, entertaining opera tells the tale of two young lovers, Nanki-Poo and Yum-Yum, who face many obstacles in their quest to be together. Gilbert’s authenticated prompt book has been the source for the direction, staging, and choreography of this production.
