The life of the beautiful Elizabeth Linley , wife of Richard Brinsley
Written as a dramatic feature by Sherard Powell
Production by Francis Dillon
The author arrived at the idea of writing a play about Elizabeth Linley , wife of Richard Brinsley Sheridan, in a rather roundabout way. Bath-especially as it was in the eighteenth century-has always fascinated him. This led him to Sheridan and a study of his life and plays. He became less interested in Sheridan as the personality of his wife emerged, for Elizabeth Linley had one of the most remarkable and dramatic histories he had ever read, and to him she seems an even more striking figure than her celebrated husband. He decided, therefore, to present her life--or rather, that part of it from her early acquaintance with Sheridan to her death-as a play: the result is The Maid of Bath.

Max Bruch was a fairly prolific composer in every branch of composition, including symphonies, operas, songs. choral music, and virtuoso works for the violin. Of the latter, the Violin Concertos No. 1, in G minor, and No. 2, in D minor, are perhaps the best known, and the writing for solo v,olin is brilliantly effective and dis plays the possibilities of the instrument to the full
Jaromir Weinberger , the composer of the opera Schnanda the Bagpiper, was bom in 1896 at Prague. He studied under Max Reger at Leipzig and in 1922 went to America as professor of composition at the Conscrvatorium of Ithica. His opera; Schicanda the Bagpiper, when produced in Germany two or three years ago proved an enormous success. It came to Covent Garden the season before last, and our audiences were hardlv less enthusiastic. Schuanda is a first-rate entertainment: good tunes, colour, wit, and humour are its outstanding characteristics. The suite consists of five of the best and most tuneful numbers.
