Mikado Trivia and Meet the Cast
Katisha, the Mikado’s “daughter-in-law elect”, is reviled as an elderly harridan extending her claws into Nanki-Poo, but eventually sways the audience into more sympathetic regard. The role is considered one of the most demanding, artistically and vocally, in the spectrum of contralto parts written by Gilbert & Sullivan.
Carey Phelps, a Stanford junior majoring in Computer Science, has performed with Opera San Jose and West Bay Opera, and is delighted to make her Savoyards debut in the role of Katisha.
