Read more about the opera Patience

Until this production was mounted, Patience was widely considered to be the most dated and beyond rescue element of the Gilbert and Sullivan repertoire. At a stroke, John Cox and John Stoddart transformed the reputation of the work. With a great deal of assistance from Derek Hammond-Stroud and Heather Begg as Bunthorne and a double bass playing Lady Jane, the work came back with complete freshness.
