Former Ottumwan performing in 'Patience'

IOWA CITY — The University of Iowa Summer Opera will continue its performances of Gilbert and Sullivan’s "Patience" at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday at the Coralville Center for the Performing Arts.

The show will include former Ottumwan Jacqueline Lang in the role of Patience. A satire of the Aesthetic movement, "Patience" tells a light-hearted tale of the rivalry of two poets fighting for the affection of a milkmaid. Zany twists and turns make this show a classic Gilbert and Sullivan production, full of wit, charm and a delightfully uplifting musical score.

Nicholas Wuehrmann will direct the UI production, and William LaRue Jones, director of the UI Symphony Orchestra, will conduct the orchestra.

Tickets are available from the Hancher Box Office in the Old Capitol Town Center and online at hbotix.hancher.uiowa.edu/Online/default.asp. Hancher Box Office summer business hours, for walk-up and phone sales, are 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. weekdays. Call 319-335-1160 or 800-426-2437. People with special needs for access, seating and auxiliary services should dial 319-335-1158, which is equipped with TDD for people with hearing impairment.

The School of Music and the Department of Theatre Arts are units of the Division of Performing Arts in the UI College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. For accommodations at the concert, call the School of Music at 319-335-1603.
