After the five star success of The Mikado in 2019, we are excited to return to the King’s Theatre with Patience, Gilbert and Sullivan’s witty masterpiece about the Aesthetic Movement of the 1880s. With willowy youths, sighing maidens, hearty milkmaids and burly officers galore, it tells the story of two rival poets and the superficiality of the women who blindly adore them. Every tune is memorable and the humour as fresh it was at the first performance!

Group bookings
A special discount for large group bookings. One additional free ticket on full price tickets for every 10 tickets purchased. This is a perfect opportunity to organise a group night out and experience one of G&S’s most loved operas.

Saturday Matinee Children’s Party
Edinburgh Gilbert & Sullivan Society are also offering a fun filled pre-show talk for children at 2pm before the Saturday matinee performance. Join us at the special reduced price of £10 to hear the story and meet some of the characters up close before you see them on the stage. The reduced price includes a theatre ticket, interval juice and biscuits and an activity pack and it available to all children under 12 and up to 2 accompanying adults.
