   W. S. Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan already had a string of hits to their credit when they pulled out the stops for The Mikado.  First performed in March of 1885, by the end of that year, The Mikado was being staged by 150 companies in Europe and the US, and its popularity continues.  HPR’sNoeTanigawa reports on the latest production by the Hawai’i Opera Theatre.

Hawai’i Opera Theatre ’s production of The Mikado premieres tonight, Friday, June 13th, at the NBC Concert Hall and continues through Sunday, June 22nd.   Check the HOT website for tickets and more information.
