The most popularly successful English opera ever written, The. Bohemian Girl , was produced in London in 1843, and it is safe to say that it has been in constant performance ever since. At least, -it has never been out of the repertory of English opera companies, all of whom have at one time or another discovered it to be the best box-office proposition in the operatic list. This song, one of the most popular in the opera, is sung by Arline, a girl of noble birth who, kidnapped as a child by the gypsies, has grown up with them. She has, however, kept a few distant memories of ner childhood, and she now tells Thaddeus, her lover, of a dream in which she found herself back in her father's baronial hall. Michael William Balfe was born in Dublin in 1808, and lived to 1882. Besides this one, he wrote a number of other operas, all of them successful in their day, but now mostly forgotten.
John Liptrott Hatton , a London musician, but Liverpool born, had much success as a song-writer in the middle of last century; his To Anthea was made famo.us by Santley, who saug it often. His part-songs, of which he wrote a great number, are still very popular with choral societies.
Sir Henry Bishop was a very busy man in the London operatic world at the beginning of the last century.He composed a number of operas himself, adapted an even greater number of European operas for the English stage, helped to form the Royal Philharmonic Society, wrote an opera—Aladdin—for Drury Lane which was to rival and utterly eclipse Weber's Oberon at Covent Garden-and did not-held, one after another, the posts of Musical Director of both these theatres, and of Vauxhall Gardens, was appointed to the Musical Professorship at Edinburgh and the Chair of Music at Oxford, was knighted for this service, and made Doctor of Music for that, and is now remembered by two or three songs, ' My pretty Jane,' ' Lo, here the gentle Lark,' and ' Home, Sweet Home.'
