The Mikado

This charming, time-tested set was designed by Don Carson, a senior designer for Walt Disney Studios. It comprises a series of static flats which occupy the stage throughout the production. Most major scene changes are created with the use of lights and gobo effects.

“With its delightfully tippy, thrice-used sets by Disney artist Don Carson, Lynn Bowers’ strikingly colorful costumes, from plum to persimmon, extravagant fan choreography and fantastic lighting, [Eugene Opera’s Mikado] was a delight for the eyes.” — Marilyn Farwell, The Register-Guard, March 13, 2011
