' The Lilac Domino ' will he broadcast in the National programme tomorrow at 7.0
The Lilac Domino, first produced at the Empire Theatre, London, in 1918, was a smashing success from the first night and throughout its long run. For years this operetta toured the provinces and the colonies, and in 1934 a broadcasting version proved that Cuvillier's music was as popular as ever.
There have been several stage versions of the show, and yet another version was fairly recently filmed. The broadcasting version has been considerably simplified to conform to the microphone's limitations. As in the case of all Gordon McConnel 's operetta productions, the music has been given the leading role, the dialogue being cut down to a short, clear-cut framework of the main plot.
It was during the rehearsals for the first broadcast of The Lilac Domino that Betty Huntley Wright , who was playing Leonie, the soubrette, met a young French actor, Claude St. Val, broadcasting for the first time as Maximilian, the waiter. They were married during the same year, and St. Val is now making a reputation for himself on the Paris stage. Maria Elsner , the charming Viennese singer who plays Georgine, the Lilac Domino herself, made her radio debut in The Countess Maritza, and was subsequently the heroine of The Gypsy Princess and Gypsy Love.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.
