Description

The Blue Troupe presents The Mikado

 

This production is a benefit for the Norfolk Historical Society

To mark the 130th anniversary of Norfolk’s Village Hall, now known as Infinity Music Hall, Gilbert & Sullivan returns to the stage with a special concert performance of The Mikado by New York’s renowned Blue Hill Troupe. This is Gilbert & Sullivan’s first return to Infinity Hall since 1884 when the hall was dedicated with a performance of Pinafore. The Mikado comes to the Infinity Hall stage as a benefit for the Norfolk Historical Society which is celebrating the history of Infinity Hall this summer in a special exhibition: ““Village Hall to Infinity Hall: 130 Years of Culture, Commerce and Community.”

Considered by many to be the gem of the Gilbert & Sullivan canon, The Mikado is an irresistible concoction of rapturous melody, witty satire, and exotic locale, peopled with unforgettable characters. There's Ko-Ko, the newly appointed Lord High Executioner, baffled by the logistics of having to execute himself before he can dispatch the other names on his "little list." Pooh-Bah, with his inflated ego, distinguished ancestry and readily crossed palm, is Lord High Everything Else. Nanki-Poo, the handsome son of the Mikado, is on the lam disguised as a questionably proficient second trombonist, pursuing his secret passion for the aptly named Yum-Yum. She, a model of Japanese schoolgirl perfection, has mastered the art of flirting—if only flirting were not a crime punishable by death. Katisha, breathtakingly ugly (save her famous left shoulder-blade), is a formidable noblewoman who has set her sights on Nanki-Poo. When the Mikado arrives on the scene, it's up to him to sort out the romantic entanglements and assign punishments to fit the crimes. Don't miss the 89 year-old Blue Hill Troupe's ninth production of this classic!
