English: Patience; or, Bunthorne's Bride, is a comic opera in two acts with music by Arthur Sullivan and libretto by W. S. Gilbert. First performed at the Opera Comique, London, on 23 April 1881, it moved to the 1,292-seat Savoy Theatre on 10 October 1881, where it was the first theatrical production in the world to be lit entirely by electric light. Henceforth, the Gilbert and Sullivan comic operas would be known as the Savoy Operas, and both fans and performers of Gilbert and Sullivan would come to be known as "Savoyards."

La prima rappresentazione ebbe luogo al teatro Opera Comique di Londra, il 23 aprile 1881, e spostata poi al nuovo Savoy Theatre il 10 ottobre 1881, dove fu il primo lavoro al mondo ad essere rappresentato in un teatro completamente illuminato con l'energia elettrica. Da quel momento in avanti, le opere comiche di Gilbert e Sullivan verranno chiamate Savoy Opera, e spettatori e interpreti di dette opere verranno chiamati scherzosamente "Savoyards"
