PATIENCE satirizes the "aesthetic craze" of the late 1800s.
All the well-born young ladies in the village, rapturously caught up in aestheticism, are in love with two contrasting aesthetic poets — a "fleshy" poet and an "idyllic" poet.
But the poets are both in love with Patience, the simple village milkmaid, who cares nothing for poetry. Patience learns that true love must be completely unselfish--it must wither and sting and burn!
The girls' military suitors don't see the point to aesthetics, but they decide to give it a try to win the women's hearts. It is touch and go for a while, but everyone ends up with a “suitable partner”, even if it is only a tulip or lily.
All the musical fun and silliness you know and love from Gilbert and Sullivan.
