The Mlkado is a classic story of love cantering on Nanki-Poo, the son of The Mikado of Japan, who flees his father's Imperial court to escape marriage with Katisha, an elderly lady. In disguise he falls in love with Yum-Yum who unfortunately has been betrothed to Ko-Ko, the Lord High Executioner. The trials and tribulations faced by Nanki-Poo in his determination to marry his sweetheart in turn mock the snobbery and pluralism of the class system.
