The Gilbert and Sullivan Company of El Paso, celebrating their 44th anniversary this year, brings the well-known delightful comic operetta, "The Mikado" to the Black Box Theatre, 430 N Downtown Mall in Las Cruces.

Nanki-Poo, the son of the Mikado arrives in the small town of Titipu disguised as a wandering minstrel. He is looking for Yum-Yum who is betrothed to marry Ko-Ko. However, Ko-Ko has been condemned to death for flirting, so Nanki-Poo thinks he now has a chance. When Ko-Ko is reprieved and elevated to the rank of the Lord High Executioner, Nanki-Po decides to kill himself. Ko-ko is under pressure from The Mikado to perform more executions so he agrees to let Nanki-Po and Yum-Yum marry for one month. At the end of that time, Nanki-Po will be put to death. Numerous plot twists insures this does not take place and the operetta ends happily.
