In the Japanese town of Titipu, a wandering minstrel, Nanki-Poo, is searching for Yum-Yum, one of the “Three little maids from school” with whom he is in love. But Yum-Yum is betrothed to Ko-Ko, the Lord High Executioner. Ko-Ko is under pressure from the absent Mikado to perform an execution and persuades the suicidal Nanki-Poo to be his victim. The fact that Nanki-Poo is really the heir to the throne of Japan creates an awkward situation when the Mikado arrives in person.
