Broadway Stars to Perform at Carnegie Hall in The Mikado

Gilbert & Sullivan fans and Broadway fans alike have reason to rejoice: BroadwayWorld.com is reporting that New York City's Collegiate Chorale will present the popular comic operetta The Mikado at Carnegie Hall on April 10 at 6:30pm. The concert will feature some major Broadway talent in the cast, including Tony Award winners Chuck Cooper (in the title role) and Victoria Clark (as Katisha), nominees Christopher Fitzgerald (as Ko-Ko) and Kelli O'Hara (as Yum-Yum), and Drama Desk nominee Jason Danieley as Nanki-Poo. The evening will be both conducted and directed by Ted Sperling, and backed by the American Symphony Orchestra.

The operetta, a satire of British Victorian society and politics in the guise of a Japanese fable, has been a staple of both the musical theater and opera worlds since its premiere in 1885.
