When Sullivan's Golden Legend appeared in 1886 it won an immediate and tremendous success. The libretto was made by Joseph Bennett , from Longfellow's poem, and tells how the young Prince Henry, lying sick of a mysterious malady, is warned that the only cure is the blood of a maid who will give her life for his. Lucifer has a big hand in the plot, appearing now as Friar and at another time as Brother Angelo , a monk with medical skill. At the end, the Prince is healed miraculously, and weds the devoted Elsie, who has been willing to die to save him.
