Showtime Singers - Patience

This light opera, by Gilbert and Sullivan pokes fun at the Aesthetic Movement of the 1880 and the eccentric affectations of barely-disguised Victorian celebrities, including Oscar Wilde and his followers.  Pretentious poets, swooning maidens, hearty milkmaids and posturing soldiers galore, all become targets of Gilbert and Sullivan’s razor-sharp wit.  It also boasts probably Gilbert’s sharpest lyrics and one of Sullivan’s most scintillating scores.
