(For cast see page 638.)
The overture of this whimsical operetta, whose text and music are both Cyril Scott's, with its distant fairy voices, and its hints of the uncanny,' prepares us at once for the mood in which to listen, and then, in the first scene, we are introduced to the heroine practising her singing. The unlucky hero appears later. In the second scene his mother is consulting a Harley Street specialist about her son's sad case; this is dialogue until near the end, when music leads into the third scene-a a school of singing. There, everything, even conversation, must be sung, and the music is typical of Cyril Scott 's whimsical fun, including a rehearsal by male voice chorus with flute accompaniment-in which he makes merry over his own 'Rat-catcher' - and a brilliantly comic burlesque of an operatic duet by Saucrbier, sung by the heroine, and the maestro of the school. Scene IV is the garden of the school, where no better fortune attends a second proposal by the hero, and the fifth is the cave of the sprite, who was the innocent cause of all the trouble. What befell there and afterwards must be left to unfold itself, as it does unmistakably. And all through the piece, the laughter of the unfeeling sprite can be heard breaking in and fading away again.

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.
