The Mathematikado: A Math-inspired Parody of a Parody

Michigan Technological University

In 1886, female students at Vassar College put on a parody of the opera "The Mikado" by Gilbert and Sullivan. The work reveals notions about who can or cannot do math. Sci comm researchers discovered the libretto in a used bookstore in 2005 as Vassar students and recently adapted the music for a combined performance-lecture.
