Free operetta to poke fun at culture
An updated version of “Patience,” a satiric 1881 Gilbert and Sullivan operetta about contemporary culture, will be presented for free at 7 p.m. Tuesday at Tabor College’s Wohlgemuth Music Education Center.
Originally a satire on a 19th century European movement that focused on aesthetic values, the production has replaced “Aesthetics” with “Hipsters.”
Like all fourteen Gilbert and Sullivan operettas, the two-act work blends spoken dialogue with musical numbers.
