The Mikado 2013
July 13, 14, 2013
Over the years, the Company has become very used to performing our Lake Harriet Bandshell concerts in the face of bright sunshine and baking summer heat. It was a pleasant change, therefore, when the skies were slightly overcast with the temperatures almost twenty degrees lower than usual. Cast members were actually surprised to see audience members in sweaters and some covered in blankets during the Saturday performance!
The concert performances went very well. Despite smaller numbers than usual, the chorus was strong and the principals’ performances were solid, delightfully done with some very funny business. The crowds were quite enthusiastic, rising both evenings to standing ovations!
