From March 3-6, 2011 people who attended the CMU Opera Workshop’s production of Gilbert and Sullivan’s The Mikado: The Town of Titipu, were transported to Japan, where the opera was set.

The Mikado is a comic-opera about a minstrel, Nanki-Poo who had banished himself from the town of Titipu because of his love for the maiden, Yum-Yum who was already engaged.  Nanki-Poo returns when he learns that Yum-Yum’s fiance has been sentenced to death for the capital crime of flirting, and hilarity ensues upon his return.
