Summary
"Cloaked in the guise of a Japanese musical drama, The Mikado is a spoof of Victorian English society. Centered on Ko-Ko, a lowly tailor, it chronicles his transformation from prisoner in a country jail to the rank of Lord High Executioner. But Ko-Ko is plagued by a terrible quandary: the emperor has instructed him to produce a head -- or forfeit his own!" -- Container
