The Mikado

Release Date: 2009-03-18

San Antonio Opera continues its season with The Mikado, the comic opera by Gilbert & Sullivan. Originally a satire of colonial British attitudes, it will be interesting to see which direction San Antonio Opera follows with this latest interpretation. Cinephiles will recall the normally dour British filmmaker Mike Leigh dramatized the making of this original play in his 1999 Topsy-Turvy. $40-$110, 8pm Fri & Sat, 2pm Sunday, Lila Cockrell Theater, 200 E. Market Street, (210) 207-8500
