The National Gilbert & Sullivan Opera Company


Buxton Opera Housebutton--dates-and-timesDates & Times

Directed by and starring Simon Butteriss, this is the "must-see" show of the 27th International Gilbert & Sullivan Festival.

Patience satirizes the Aesthetic Movement of the 1870s and '80s and the empty, self-indulgent artists of the day. Languid poets, drooping, sighing maidens, and the manly dragoons make for a hilarious evening's entertainment.  

Accompanied by the National Festival Orchestra, directed by James Hendry.
