“Patience” is a comic opera in two acts with the libretto by W. S. Gilbert and music by Arthur Sullivan. Produced in 1881, it was the opening show at the D’Oyly Carte’s Savoy Theatre, the first theatre in the world to be lit entirely by electric lights. The opera follows the love triangle between the Dragoon Guards who are engaged to the villages twenty love sick maidens: who are in infatuated with two contrasting aesthetic poets; one “fleshly” the other “idyllic”: who are in love with the simple milkmaid, Patience: who believes “Love, to be pure, must be absolutely unselfish”! In the end it is all sorted out and everyone has a bride, save one who is left with a tulip or lily. In the operatic tradition, the performances will be accompanied by a live orchestra, and will not be amplified.
