English Touring Opera


By Gilbert & SullivanBuxton Opera Housebutton--dates-and-timesDates & Times

An all-singing, all-dancing comedy by the masters of British musical theatre, Gilbert & Sullivan’s Patience pokes fun at Victorian society and its stock characters, with willowy poets, sighing maidens and burly officers galore. Expect plenty of tunes and humour as fresh today as it was at the first performance.

Sung in English with surtitles

“Patience showcases ETO at its very best. It is, both for its quality and its travelling ubiquity, not to be missed. Do yourself a favour and don’t”
