EDITORS COMMENTS
This design by Alice Mary Havers for the Savoy Operas production of "A Dream of Patience" in the late 1880s showcases the enchanting world of Gilbert and Sullivan's comic opera. Havers, a talented artist of the time, expertly blends classical and neoclassical elements with a touch of Art Nouveau in this stunning programme design. The central focus of the image is a woman, possibly Patience herself, reclining on a grassy bank surrounded by a colorful woodland scene. Cherubs and Cupid frolic playfully among the trees, while a lyre-playing figure in the distance adds to the musical theme of the production. The golden moon and star-studded night sky complete the serene and dreamlike atmosphere. Havers' use of ornate borders, intricate floral patterns, and a harmonious color palette of white, blue, red, green, purple, and pink, reflects the elegance and sophistication of the late Victorian era. The Greek and Grecian influence is evident in the woman's flowing dress and the overall design, adding to the unrequited love theme of the opera. The Savoy Theatre in London, where "A Dream of Patience" was first performed, was known for its innovative productions and groundbreaking use of electric lighting. This design by Alice Mary Havers perfectly encapsulates the magical and whimsical spirit of the Savoy Operas, making it a cherished piece of theatre history.
