Patience, a light opera, by Gilbert and Sullivan is the duo’s extremely witty, infrequently performed little masterpiece about the Aesthetic Movement of the 1880s, with willowy poets, sighing maidens, hearty milkmaids and burly officers galore. Every tune is whistleable, every word worth hearing, and the humour is as fresh as it was at the first performance.
Enjoy a picnic in the church hall gardens at St Peters, prior to and during the 45 minute interval . . weather permitting of course, if inclement the hall will be open.
Tea and Coffee will be provided but do bring your own picnics and fizz!
