La Princesse Jaune
The first of Saint-Saens's operas to hit the stage was created to satisfy the craze for Japan that was sweeping Paris in the 1870s. It cleverly conjures up the colourful sounds of the Orient for western ears. A young doctor falls in love with the picture of a Japanese girl and sets out to bring her to life with a magic potion. Sung in English, with dialogue adapted for radio by Richard Langham Smith.

As Antwerp celebrates the 400th anniversary of the birth of Anthony van Dyck , Paul Allen visits the city to explore the life and work of one of the world's exceptional painters.
