Pacific Opera Project Reprises Production Of THE MIKADO At Highland Park Ebell Club
From August 16-31, 2019, Pacific Opera Project (POP) reprises its popular 2013 production of Gilbert and Sullivan's The Mikado at The Highland Park Ebell Club.
POP's colorful production, called "about the most fun one can have in a Los Angeles theater right now" (Maestro Arts & Reviews) updates Gilbert & Sullivan's most popular operetta, The Mikado, with Harajuku costumes, inspired by the district of Tokyo famous for its wild mix of colors and styles. Eye-popping colors, intricate choreography, and zany antics give this beloved classic a signature POP twist while a reworked libretto is sure to surprise even Gilbert and Sullivan aficionados with its unique take on what was originally a thinly-veiled skewering of British nobility and politics. Lyrics originally written to take a jab at people who may even have been in the audience will, in the grand tradition, be revamped to poke fun at current people and issues.
The production's cast features E. Scott Levin (Ko-Ko), Phil Meyer (Pooh-bah), Charlie Kim (Nanki-poo), Janet Todd (Yum-Yum), Matthew Welch(Mikado), Abbe Drake (Pitty-Sing), Tiffany Ho (Peep-Bo), Adelaide Sinclair (Katisha), William Vallandigham (Pish), and Benjamin Howard (Tush). The production is directed by Artistic Director Josh Shaw and Music Director Parisa Zaeri leads the chamber orchestra. Maggie Green costumes the 28 singers.
POP's final 2019 production is its signature modern take on Puccini's La boheme AKA "The Hipsters" on December 5, 6, 7, 12, 13, 14, 2019 at 8pm.
