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.

    Thanks Geniaus – from one former librarian to another ! 🙂
