The Circus Princess, which was first produced in Vienna in 1926, receives its first presentation in this country with this performance in the Concert Hall at Broadcasting House tonight. Book, lyrics, and music have been specially adapted for broadcasting by the producer and conductor. Emmerich Kalman is one of the most famous contemporary composers of operetta. He has a long list of successes to his credit, including A Little Dutch Girl and The Gypsy Princess. John Hendrik , the young German tenor, to whom broadcasting has given rapid prominence, has his first big part in this country in tonight's production ; in Germany he has sung many optretta rôles created by Richard Tauber. He plays opposite Harriet Bennett , a distinguished American singer, who created the title-rôle in Nina Rosa , and played in Rose Marie for two years in Australia.
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.
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.
