Don’t miss Opera Creations’ 2013 Mainstage Production!!

The Mikado, first produced in 1885, is one of Gilbert and Sullivan’s most famous and enduring operettas, in which the librettist and composer poke fun at the social customs and traditions of Great Britain (or for that matter any stodgy and slightly blood-thirsty nation). Audience members may recognize the songs “A Wandering Minstrel, I,” “The Flowers that Bloom in the Spring,” “Willow, Tit-Willow,” and many more. They are certain to recognize the posturing politician, the jealous older woman, and the young couple trying to behave properly (or else they will lose their heads).

Local favorites Karen Svites, Simone Vigilante, Aaron Schnurbusch, Jonathan Ross, and Roberto Flores hold starring roles in the cast, directed by Patricia Heuermann.  Newcomers to Opera Creations are David Fields, Bryant Belin, Heather Ferguson, and Ashley Renfro. Paul Templon and Vance Reese round out the musical leadership as chorus director and music director/accompanist, respectively.

Performances are open to the public with limited seating.

$28/adult and $15/students 18 and under
