CREATIVE CUTS - A delightful comic opera

The Maleny Singers 21st season continues with Gilbert and Sullivan's comic opera, The Mikado, June 8 -9, 15-16 at the Maleny Community Centre.

The Mikado is set in the 1880s, in the imaginary Japanese town of Titipu. Nanki-Poo, the son of Japanese Emperor Mikado, has fled there to avoid marrying Katisha, an older woman, and he ends up falling in love with Yum-Yum, who is betrothed to the lord high Executioner Ko-Ko.

As mentioned in our May HT, in Oda, a tiny town in the prefecture of Shimane, 81-year-old Mrs Masako Arito, heard from her daughter in Australia about the performance in Maleny.

Having studied Nihon-buyo, the art of Japanese classical dance, all of her life, she spread the word to her dance community and over 50 kimonos, belts and accessories emerged from both personal collections and performance wardrobes and were shipped to Australia The Mikado!

Tickets are available via, and also on the door for each show.
