An enduringly popular romantic spoof that has charmed countless listeners since its 1885 debut, The Mikado's appealing Japanese setting lends fresh novelty to Sullivan's winsome melodies and Gilbert's satirical verses.This new vocal score edition by Carl Simpson and Ephraim Hammett Jones includes all the voice parts, a piano reduction of the full score, and the complete libretto. This inexpensive edition exactly matches the excellent full score of The Mikado, also published by Dover, and prepared by the same editorial team. It will be indispensable to soloists, chorus members, and rehearsal pianists.
This exemplary new edition of the vocal score of an enchanting operetta -- which has delighted audiences for over a century with its catchy melodies, its witty lyrics, and its madcap tale of tender-hearted pirates, timid policemen, and the demands of duty -- was prepared by musicologists Carl Simpson and Ephraim Hammett Jones, who returned to original manuscripts and early sources to produce handsome, newly engraved plates closest to Gilbert and Sullivan's original intentions. All of the voice parts appear here, in addition to a piano reduction of the full score and the complete libretto. Introduction by the editors. Contents. Instrumentation.
