ELSIE MCCULLOUGH (soprano)
Just over sixty years ago Berlioz produced an opera from which the Royal Hunt and Storm is an extract. This ' Symphonic Entr'acte ' represents a scene in ' a virgin forest in the neighbourhood of Carthage '. Naiads appear and bathe. The hunt is heard in the distance, gradually drawing nearer, and the naiads vanish. Hunters cross the scene. A storm approaches. While the storm increases, Ascanius, son of Aeneas, gallops past, followed by other huntsmen. The storm approaches its height and night falls, Dido and Aeneas, hunting, arrive and take refuge in a cave. Wood Nymphs appear, singing ; also Fauns and Satyrs, all of whom dance a grotesque dance in the darkness. A little stream in the rocks becomes a noisy cataract. Lightning strikes a tree, and finally the ..hole scene is obscured by dense clouds. The storm at last abates and the clouds scatter. The music calls for no description. The above conveys its spirit.
