THE MAGYAR ORCHESTRA
Conducted by WALFORD HYDEN
(Leaders, ENDRE BALOGH and BERNARD REILLIE )
Gay matter for a May Day evening! The Four
Musketeers, assisted by Mabel Pearl , have not been long in this country, but they will enchant lovers of syncopated harmony by their gay, brisk style. Laughter holding both its sides is inevitable when Charles Peurose and Partner take the air; their records sell in millions and make even Zulus laugh. For relief there are the languishing strains on mandoline and banjo of Mario de Pietro , who smiles all the time he plays. Rough stuff comes from the versatile Mrs. Pullpleasure directing a ' ladies orchestra.' Listeners will welcome, too, charming Phyllis Monkman in her first solo appearance in radio variety; she has for support her old Co-optimist comrade, Davy Burnaby , who has cantered rapidly into the very front rank of radio comperes.

' Der Rosenkavalier'

(Strauss)
Act III : A Private Room in an Inn
Chorus Master, ARNOLD PERRY
Conductor, Sir THOMAS BEECHAM
Relayed from The Royal Opera House, Covent Garden
(Opening Night of Season)

The events leading up to the third act of this brilliant comedy are concerned with the amorous behaviour of that old reprobate, Baron Ochs. He had made an assignation with young Octavian, who, having had occasion earlier in the opera to disguise himself as a pretty chamber-maid, is known so to the Baron. The scene is a private room at an inn. Octavian is there, and so are several odd people whom Octavian has hidden in various places with the idea of later scaring the Baron and making a fool of him. Ochs presently appears, hopeful and full of ardour. He has, however, anything but a gay time. He is harried by spies, pestered by a woman who comes and claims him as her husband and brings with her four children she declares to be his. The Commissioner of Police arrives, then Faninal, the father of the girl to whom Ochs is betrothed, and after them the Princess, his cousin, in the presence of whom the baffled Ochs is finally and completely humbled. He takes flight, and the Princess, resigned to the loss of Octavian's love, gives her consent to his betrothal to Sophie, now released from her promise to Baron Ochs.
