Pitti-Sing. The Mikado. Victorian opera character.

The Mikado is a comic opera in two acts by Gilbert and Sullivan (libretto by WS Gilbert, with music by Arthur Sullivan).

The Mikado originated in the 1880s in Victorian London, where she was also premiered in 1885. The operetta plays in 1450 in Titipu in Japan, where the Emperor, who was then the title Mikado led, the flirting has punishable by death. The Mikado stands out because of the black English humor, but rather uses the exotic decoration to a biting satire of Victorian society. The composer Arthur Sullivan and librettist and writer W. S. Gilbert have written together 14 comic operas. The name duo Gilbert and Sullivan is a buzzword for English comic opera of the 19th century.

With its comic operas in which the librettist Gilbert also directed, found the infamous punch lines and critical failures of English literature and pictorial satire input into the musical theater, which took the strengths and weaknesses of the citizens of an emerging capitalist industrial and affluent society targeted. The term “operetta” used both artists never.
