W.S. Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan are infamous for their hysterical operas and tongue-twisting lines, but The Mikado ranks especially high in the pantheon of their works. Gilbert and Sullivan fans will tell you that it's one of their best comedies, with a story you'll fall in love with and a satire that lampoons traditional, stuffy English society.
Gilbert and Sullivan were Britain's chief satirists in Victorian England—though not everyone realized it. They would disguise their satirical jabs by writing plays set in faraway lands or settings, which was meant to give some distance to the points they were making about life at home. In The Mikado, they turned their audiences attention to Japan.
