The Mikado has long been one of the most popular of Gilbert and Sullivan’s operas. Although full of the usual mix-up, melody and joyful gaiety, it has in addition a gentle sense of the loveliness of youth and its inevitable passing, a sense of the transience of happiness, a comic blood-thirstiness and a child-like quality that all things can be a source of innocent merriment.
