Gilbert & Sullivan Austin presents a Concert Performance of “Patience; or, Bunthorne's Bride.” A hilarious and lilting comic opera, Patience satirizes the "aesthetic craze" of the 1870s and '80s, when the output of poets, composers, painters, and designers of all kinds was indeed prolific but whose followers and admirers, some argued, were empty and self-indulgent.

“Patience” has some of Gilbert’s finest comedy and Sullivan’s most captivating tunes, adding up to a masterwork fully equal to their very best. It has wit, charm, poetry ... and a delightfully complicated love triangle – surely perfect musical entertainment for the whole family!

We hear over and over that too much time passes between productions, so that any individual opera is unseen for many years. With this concert version of “Patience” we hope to be responding to those concerns.

The performance will include slightly edited dialogue and music with piano accompaniment performed by some of your favorite singers.  Principal actors in suggested costuming will perform the actions of the play, accompanied by a four-part chorus. Projected backgrounds will provide a colorful suggestion of a set, and all dialogue and lyrics will be captioned.
