Gilbert and Sullivan’s Patience – first Australian production 1882

I’m celebrating my 100th post on Now and Then with something aesthetic and artistic ….. swoon.

In 1882, George Musgrove teamed up with J C Williamson and Arthur Gamer as a theatre production team, pooling their skills and funds for the premiere Australian production of Gilbert and Sullivan’s Patience at Melbourne’s Theatre Royal. ¬† The production was illustrated in The ¬†Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil – 15 July 1882.
