Gilbert & Sullivan's Patience - King's Head Theatre
Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle
CHARLES Court Opera is returning to the King’s Head Theatre with a brand new, fresh and witty production of Gilbert & Sullivan’s Patience (or Bunthorne’s Bride) – from June 6 (previews from June 4) to June 28, 2014.
A satire on artistic movements and meaningless fads, Patience brims with cheeky humour, some of Sullivan’s most irresistible music and deliciously over-the-top characters.
John Savournin’s direction and Simon Bejer’s design will bring out the operetta’s relevance to a modern audience.
The cast of nine singers has yet to be announced.
Patience has musical direction by David Eaton and lighting by Nic Holdridge.
Tickets: £15 – £25; previews (June 4 and 5) all seats £10. To book, call the box office on 020 7478 0160 or visit www.kingsheadtheatre.com/.
Times: Monday to Saturday at 7.15pm; Saturday, June 28 at 2pm and 7.15pm.
Australian musical Once We Lived Here continues at the King’s Head Theatre until April 26, 2014.
