Gilbert & Sullivan's "The Mikado"

7:00 PM


Central Florida Vocal Arts and Opera del Sol, in collaboration with the Space Coast Symphony Orchestra, will present a star-studded cast of singers in an unstaged production of Gilbert and Sullivan’s beloved operetta, The MikadoThe Mikado is the most popular Gilbert and Sullivan operetta, and arguably the most popular ever written. The Mikado is laugh out loud fun for the entire family, as Victorian England meets an imaginary imperial Japan.  Sparkling satire, famous melodies, and captivating silliness abound in this topsy-turvy tale of love and misadventures.

Through collaboration with the Asian American community in Central Florida, we are using this work as an opportunity to celebrate Japanese art and culture via this satirical work”. Directed by Asian American director, Kit Cleto with support from veteran opera director Eric Pinder, this production team promises to bring creative comedy to the stage through an outstanding cast.

Including shining stars Tamir Hernandez (Maria [West Side Story]) as Yum Yum, Japanese American opera star, Arisa Kusumi (Pamina [Die Zauberflote], Susanna [Le Nozze di Figaro]) as The (first female) Mikado and Metropolitan Opera regular Susan Neves as Katisha (Turandot [Turandot], Bloody Mary [South Pacific]), the ladies of our modern Mikado are the finest Central Florida has to offer! Not to be out done, the men in our cast including John Segers, Jacob Pence, Stephen Cauley and Bryan Hayes also shine brightly! With Space Coast Symphony Orchestra and maestro Aaron Collins bringing this score to life, this caliber of talent on one stage in Central Florida won’t soon be found again and will certainly result in an audience reveling in (un)”modified rapture”.
