Synopsis by Rose of Sharon Winter
This video presents a performance of Gilbert and Sullivan's farcical play The Mikado. The writers used a traditional Japanese tale to poke fun at their own English society during Victorian times. The production took place at Canada's Stratford Festival. The story of troubled love and allegiance and mistaken identity unfolds on an elegantly simple set. The production stars Gidon Saks, Marie Baron, and Richard Mcmillan in a classic comedy of errors.
