Afternoon of Fun

On Sunday afternoon, July 31st, we went to see the UI School of Music present The Mikado.  I had figured I'd end up going by myself, but my friend Dennis wanted to come along (I was surprised!).  It was great fun.  I knew many of the songs (If you want to know who we are, we are gentlemen of Japan; Three little maids from school are we; Titwillow, etc.) but had never before seen the complete production.  And something I had not expected, the words to the songs appeared above the stage!  I guess you would call them supra-titles as opposed to sub-titles. 

The Director added a vaudevillian twist to the operetta, which made it quite funny.
