Act I. The Boudoir of the Princess Von Werden berg
Cast in order of appearance :
Conductor, JOHN BARBIOLLI
(From Midland Regional)
A T the beginning of the first Act, the young
Count Octavian is paying his devotions to the Princess, wife of a Field-Marshal who is away at the wars. The lady is touched by the boy's dovotion, but feels that she is too old to keep his affection, and has made up her mind that she must give him up. They are interrupted by tho arrival of the Baron Ochs, and Octavian hidos, and disguises himself as a girl. When he emerges, the Baron is greatly taken with him, and there is much by-play between them, when the Princess is not looking. The object of the Baron's visit was to ask his kinswoman, tho
Princess, to choose for him a cavalier to carry his rose to the lady of his heart, and when she has sent him away, the Princess tells Octavian that he must undertake the task. The idea pleases him so much that in leaving, he forgets to take a tender farewell of the lady, to her evident chagrin.

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.
