Patience

Author(s): Gilbert & Sullivan
Company: Charles Court Opera
Running time: 2h 00min approx

Directed by John Savournin, musically directed by David Eaton and designed by Simon Bejer, cast led by Catriona Hewitson in the title role (recently starring in Scottish Opera’s ‘The Gondoliers’), and a host of CCO regulars, including Matthew Kellett and Catrine Kirkman.

Gilbert’s pen was rarely sharper than when he wrote this satire on artistic movements, hero-worship and meaningless fads. Patience is a satire of the aesthetic movement that gained the support of Oscar Wilde, which CCO brings into the 21st century.
