New York Gilbert & Sullivan Players (NYGASP) and Artistic Director Albert Bergeret present The Mikado, a timeless comedy about love and political entanglements. Set in Japan, this satirical operetta spins a mythical tale of romantic triangles, blundering officials, and clever coincidences. The Mikado premiered in 1885 at the Savoy Theatre in London and to this day remains the most frequently performed Savoy comic opera.

As America's preeminent professional Gilbert & Sullivan repertory ensemble, NYGASP’s performances have become a beloved Wolf Trap annual tradition at the Filene Center since 1995.
