AE For the CCW When I first agreed to produce "The Mikado" for Juneau Lyric Opera, I was not very familiar with the show. All I knew was that it was a Gilbert & Sullivan classic set in a fictional town in Japan that featured some great catchy songs, and that it was a clever satire of Western bureaucracy and social mores. Over the course of the two years that it has taken to pull the production together I became much more familiar with the plot and music, but I never actually saw it performed onstage until we began our final days of rehearsal at the new Thunder Mountain High School Theater. Much to my delight (and relief) I am really liking the show.
