One of the most popular of the long line of “Savoy Operas,” this witty tale of tangled law and love is a satire of Victorian England set in Japan.

Will Nanki-Poo find love or face the wrath of the Mikado for defying his order? Find out in this romp that weaves two cultures seamlessly together with humorous lyrics and elaborate plot twists.
