The Gilbert & Sullivan Society of Houston presents the comic opera, A Topsy Turvy Mikado, at Zilkah Hall at The Hobby Center for the Performing Arts.

The Society’s long-standing artistic director, Alistair Donkin, produces a new take on one of G&S’ most popular opera’s The Mikado while keeping the music and songs beloved by generations. With A Topsy Turvy Mikado, you’ll get a look at the show behind the show.

This entirely new version of The Mikado takes place during a rehearsal of the original 1885 production by the D’Oyly Carte Opera Company. During the course of this rehearsal, you will meet the actors who actually created the roles all those years ago. You will see not only the rehearsal taking place with all the music and dialogue you know, but also gain a flavor of the stress the cast were under at Gilbert’s dictatorial hands.
