A lighthearted burlesque of Japanese culture and the vagaries of love, and one of the most widely admired of all the Gilbert and Sullivan operettas. The sparkling lyrics and witty dialogue of this comic masterpiece are as much a delight to read as they are to hear with musical accompaniment. The complete libretto is reprinted in this edition from the standard performance text of The Mikado, complete with 9 charming illustrations drawn by W. S. Gilbert himself.

"I'm really very sorry for you all, but it's an unjust world, and virtue is triumphant only in theatrical performances." 3.5 stars. Plenty of classically funny and clever bits, but it's a little long-winded in places. Read full review

Very funny, although much better as a play with song than as a script to be read- Gilbert and Sullivan were certainly a pair! Read full review
