Patience, Gilbert & Sullivan

Together with the very generous support of The D’Oyly Carte Charitable Trust, Opera Anywhere are delighted to be bringing you our new show of ‘Patience’.

Patience by Gilbert & Sullivan

Patience is a high-spirited tale full of misplaced desires. There’s Reginald Bunthorne, the rakish, sulky ‘so-called’ poet with whom all the village maidens are besotted. Unbeknownst to them however is the fact that he doesn’t even like poetry and not only that, they find, he’s in love with Patience the milkmaid! Now Patience only has eyes for Archibald, a real poet who is just a little too perfect to marry. Meanwhile, a regiment of Dragoon Guards arrive perplexed to find the village maidens, who they were due to marry, very much disinterested. Oh dear! Will everyone find their wished-for suitor? Join us for this lively operetta that playfully pits the strict morals of the Victorian era against the passionate indulgences of 1870s Aestheticism.

“Great production. Act one finale is my favourite G and S moment. I shed a tear or two in the sextet. Well done”. – David Martin, Patience, Lewes, Dec 2018

“That was a great show and in great seats all thanks to you, we didn’t really know “Patience” but it was terrific . . Many thanks again for a wonderful evening” – David Crafts, Patience, Lewes, Dec 2018

“I just wanted to thank you for a fabulous evening at Waterperry Gardens . I love G&S and these days its hard to find productions. We came across this by chance when we visited the gardens a couple of weeks before. It was a tremendous performance, well sung and acted, truly a super evening”  – Alison Wisbeach, audience member, Patience, Waterperry Gardens, July 2018
