: 'The Blue Forest'

by Louis AUBERT
A Fairy Opera in Three Acts
Libretto by JACQUES CHENEVIERE
English Translation by HERMANN KLEIN
ACT I
Cast :
THE WIRELESS CHORUS
Chorus Master, STANFORD ROBINSON
THE WIRELESS SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA
Leader, S. KNEALE KELLEY
Conducted by PERCY PITT
AUBERT'S fairy tale opera, The Blue Forest, was finished in 1910. Its rather delicate and elusive charm failed to enlist the interest of the Paris Opera, and it was in Boston, U.S.A., that it was first performed in 1913. The tale is made up of three of the best known fairy tales, ' Hop o' my Thumb,' ' Red Riding Hood,' and ' The Sleeping Beauty.' Less obvious in its appeal than Humperdinck's ' Hansel and Gretel,' and without its folk-lore element, it caters none the less equally well for the young people who hear only three of their beloved stories presented with a new charm, and for the music lover who can realize something of the grace and delicacy of the score.
An article on the work, by Watson Lyle , the music critic, will be found by listeners in the Christmas number of Cassell's Magazine.

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.
