Widely recognized as Gilbert and Sullivan's most popular work, "The Mikado" enjoyed unprecedented runs in London and New York in 1885. In 1886 it was reported that 170 different productions were running simultaneously in the United States alone. The Bryceson Treharne/G. Schirmer edition has been newly updated with critical essays, selected discographies and videographies, and charming illustrations from Gilbert's own "Bab" sketches. This is a handsomely-bound singers' edition that is a fitting tribute to the legacy of these two artistic giants.
