2006 “Patience”

Derrick Ivey adopted a clever course of action: librettist William Gilbert’s spin on British aestheticism would, in Ivey’s vision, be turned around to countenance a similar period in American counter-culture, the Beat generation of the 1950s and ’60s….  This Durham Savoyards’ production of Patience reminded its observers anew that artistic expression is but a magnifying glass used to shed light on the human condition in all its seriousness or — as here — utmost hilarity.

— Carl Halperin, Classical Voice of North Carolina
