Mikado in the News

Last year's Mu Performing Arts/Skylark Opera production of The Mikado--in which Isabella played Yum-Yum (or, Tum-Tum)--recently received national attention!

 

The critically acclaimed, sold-out production featured Asian American actors in a mixed-race cast and set the operetta in Edwardian England. It was invoked by the Seattle Times, MSNBC, and other news outlets as a "modern Mikado" that successfully dispensed with the practice of dressing up Caucasian actors in yellow makeup and fake Asian costumes. No yellowface necessary! Yay, Mu and Skylark!
