A BALLAD OPERA
Book by RODNEY BENNETT
Lyrics by RODNEY BENNETT and F. G. WILSON
Music arranged and composed by GERRARD
Williams
Characters :
Sailors, Blackguards. Ladies and Gentlemen of Vauxhall, Villagers
The Scenes :
1. Deck of the Merchantman Mermaid
2. Vauxhall Gardens
3. Garden of Sir Geoffrey Vane 's house at Peter-sham.
Period: Early Nineteenth
Century
Chloe Vane gets bored with her convent-school at Marseilles, and when you come to think of it, what Operatic heroine wouldn't ? A maid of infinite resource, moreover, she disguises herself as a cabin-boy on the good ship Mermaid in order to reach England. Then the plot begins to thicken !
This merry and amusing libretto is wedded to a very charming ' score.' Much of the music is traditional, in using which Mr. Gerrard Williams follows the lead of Gay, Dibden and other past masters, as well as several moderns.
Altogether, an engagingly light-hearted affair.

THE BIRMINGHAM STUDIO AUGMENTED
ORCHESTRA
(Leader, FRANK CANTELL )
Conducted by JOSEPH Lewis
THIS work received its first English performance at a concert of the Royal Philharmonic
Society in 1903, with Kreisler as soloist.
It is a brilliant, elaborate work, in three Movements, the First Moderately quick and majestic, the Second At a moderate pace, the Third Very quick. Each Movement opens straight away with its principal tune. In the First it is introduced by the soloist, in the Second by Cor Anglais (the soloist soon taking it up), in the Third by the soloist.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
