In Rick Shiomi's re-imagined version of The Mikado, flirting is still declared a crime and punishable by death. Yet, there's a lot of flirting going on in the town of Ti-Tea-Pu, in the land of England. In anticipation of the arrival of the monarch, The Mikado, a tailor has been appointed Lord High Executioner and must behead someone before his majesty arrives. The tailor himself is involved in a love triangle and attempts to set up his rival, Franki Poo, before he loses his own head. It's all the fun and games of Gilbert and Sullivan, with a modern twist. In describing his vision for his retelling of this classic operetta, Rick Shiomi says, "Our re-imagined production of The Mikado will deconstruct the unfortunate stereotypes while still retaining the humor and classic music; getting at the heart of the universal human experience through the lens of our diverse contemporary American culture." See this new production by the Gilbert and Sullivan Very Light Opera Company at the Howard Conn Fine Arts Center in Minneapolis.
