Fervaal was Vincent d'lndy's first opera and both the libretto and the music were written by him during the years 1889-1895. It was produced in Brussels in 1897 and in the following year in Paris at the Ooera Comique, and in 1912 it was given at the Opera. The story is concerned with the adventures of Fervaal, a young Celtic chief, who takes part in defending his country against the Saracen invaders.

A 'Father Brown' story by G. K. Chesterton
The Characters
The story adapted and produced by Felix Felton
'The Three Tools of Death' is the last story in Chesterton's first 'Father Brown' book, 'The Innocence of Father Brown' (published in 1911). In Father Brown, Chesterton created one of the most distinctive of all fictitious detectives, a figure only less striking than Sherlock Holmes himself. Like the great Sherlock, the amiable moon-faced little priest was based on a real character; in this case, Chesterton's friend, Father (now Monsignor) O'Connor. Monsignor O'Connor tells us in his recent book on Chesterton: 'My native talent for detection was of the slenderest, but it appealed to Chesterton's faculty for wonder.'
