Read more about the opera Patience

As always, there was a indication of popularity for each of the Savoy Operas. This can be taken as the number of performances given to each piece during a two week run in each of the northern cities. The Mikado led, with three performances. Iolanthe, The Gondoliers, Yeomen of the Guard and Trial By Jury received two each. Single performances were reserved for Patience, Princess Ida, The Sorcerer, and, perhaps more surprisingly, Pirates and Pinafore. Patience was now unfashionable, some time after the death of Oscar Wilde and the demise of the aesthetic movement.

The cast is as reviewed by the Dundee Courier & Argus and Dundee Evening Telegraph & Post.
