Newcomers to POP, Samantha Geraci-Yee and Katy Tang take turns with the role of Yum-Yum, while Kyle Patterson and Matthew Miles alternate playing the Mikado’s son Nanki-Poo. The role of Katisha, who wishes to claim Nanki-Poo for herself, is played by mezzo-soprano Adelaide Sinclair.
Pacific Opera Project, headed by artistic director Josh Shaw, strives for innovation, accessibility, and fun.
