My daughter has just come across a duet from Patience, Gilbert & Sullivan, she'd like to sing with a friend. Neither she nor I know the plot of the operetta. Can anyone provide a link to a suitable site for her to look it up, please?

Thank you for the link information. G&S have to be my favorites since childhood. They still speak, politically to us today---take Iolanthe, for example. The Pirates for another.

As to Patience---If You're Anxious for to Shine---what a clever song.

My own favorite interpreter of the G&S patter was the late Martyn Green.

We just opened Patience this weekend, and for what is generally considered one of the less popular G&S operettas I've really come to enjoy the music. You didn't mention the gender of your daughter's friend, but the Long Years Ago, Prithee Pretty Maiden, and So Go to Him duets are quite entertaining when well sung.

Her friend's female, too, Scotsbard. She says her favoured duet has no title but begins "When I go out of door" and is subtitled (or would have been had there been a title) "Bunthorn and Grosvenor".

An aside: my wife's a linguistician (and also a linguist) and objects to questionnaires, etc, which ask her gender. She insists "Gender is a grammatical concept; sex is what distinguishes man from woman."
