Patience 2000

In Patience, or Bunthorne's Bride, Gilbert and Sullivan poked gentle fun at the popular aesthetic movement. The story centres on a gentle, but simple milkmaid, Patience, who has never experienced true love, to the disgust of the ladies of the village in which she works. Despite all being engaged to members of a corps of heavy dragoons, they themselves are all hopelessly in love with Bunthorne, a local landowner who has decided to become a poet in order to make the most of their interest in aestheticism. Bunthorne is in love with Patience, but she repels him, confessing to Lady Angela that the only boy she has ever been close to was a childhood friend whom she played with in her infancy. With the return of the ladies' fiancés from the war and the arrival of Patience's childhood friend, Grosvenor, also a poet, there will be many twists and turns before everyone finds a partner. Will Patience find her heart again? And who will be Bunthorne's bride?
