Patience from the Showtime Singers

This light opera, by Gilbert and Sullivan pokes fun at the Aesthetic Movement of the 1880 and the eccentric affectations of barely-disguised Victorian celebrities, including Oscar Wilde and his followers. Pretentious poets, swooning maidens, hearty milkmaids and posturing soldiers galore, all become targets of Gilbert and Sullivan’s razor-sharp wit. It also boasts probably Gilbert’s sharpest lyrics and one of Sullivan’s most scintillating scores. Doors open 7.30pm plus Sunday matinée 14 April, doors open 2.30pm
