The Collegiate Chorale's 70th Anniversary Season will include a production of Gilbert and Sullivan's The Mikado featuring several Broadway favorites.



The April 10, 2012, evening at Carnegie Hall is scheduled to begin at 6:30 PM. The performance will feature the talents of Kelli O'Hara, Jason Danieley and Christopher Fitzgerald. Ted Sperling will conduct.

The Collegiate Chorale is led by music director James Bagwell.

The Mikado is a comic opera in two acts, with music by Arthur Sullivan and libretto by W.S. Gilbert. Debuted by the D'Oyly Carte Opera Company at the Savoy Theatre in London on March 14, 1885, The Mikado was Gilbert and Sullivan's ninth collaborative work. Set in Japan, the opera, according to press notes, "explores the exotic, macabre, and humorous while satirizing British politics and institutions in the fictionalized foreign land of Titipu."
