Former Boise Philharmonic Music Director Robert Franz conducts, returning to The Morrison Center stage for the first time since 2016. Bernstein’s score for the musical includes “Something’s Coming”, “Maria”, “America”, “Somewhere”, “Tonight”, “Jet Song”, “I Feel Pretty”, “A Boy Like That”, “One Hand, One Heart”, “Gee, Officer Krupke”, and “Cool”.

New York Gilbert & Sullivan Players: The Mikado -by- Opera Idaho

Comedy, Opera, Operetta
New York Gilbert & Sullivan Players return to The Morrison Center with their delightfully reimagined The Mikado. The most known and performed Gilbert & Sullivan operetta, The Mikado dates from 1885. Setting the operetta in Japan, an exotic locale far away from Britain, allowed Gilbert to satirize British politics and institutions more freely by disguising them as Japanese. NYGASP’s all-new production brings center stage the history and inspiration for the writing of The Mikado as the real life characters of Victorian London’s D’Oyly Carte Opera Company are combined with the imagined setting of Titipu, influenced by the art and architecture of Japan that had recently reached England in the late 19th century.
