'PIXIE LED'

A FANTASY with Music for a MIDSUMMER NIGHT
By
L. DU G. Pixie Songs specially composed by KENNETH A. WRIGHT
Characters :
Fairies, Gnomes and Pixies
Reggie and Delia, while motoring over Dart-moor, find themselves in Fairyland
SEVERAL broadcasts have familiarized the radio audience with two characters who owe their origin to the lively imagination of Mr. L. du Garde Peach, Reggie and Delia. Previously their surroundings have been essentially modern,
, but this is Midsummer Day, and even in 1927 one is apt to meet the fairies on this one night of all the year.

'The Tales of Hoffmann'

Music by JACQUES OFFENBACH
English Words by EDWARD AGATE
The Prologue-Act II-The Epilogue
THE PROLOGUE
Scene : Luther's wine cellar in Nuremberg
A festive evening-Students drinking and singing. Hoffmann, poet and philanderer, is there with Nicklaus, his friend ; so is Town Councillor Lindorf, whose malignant influence permeates the three Tales. His rowdy friends urge Hoffman to sing the Legend of Kleinzack, a comic song from which his mind wanders midway to thoughts of his latest love affair. Finally he launches forth into a detailed description of three amorous episodes, one of which concerned the Lady Giulietta.
ACT II
Scene : Venice. A gallery in Giulietta's Palace, overlooking the Grand Canal
A popular lady, this Giulietta, who entertains lavishly. Her guests include Hoffmann, Nicklaus, Dapertutto (Lindorf in a satanic incarnation), and Schlemihl, one of the courtesan's jealous admirers, who is subsequently slain in a duel by the infatuated poet. However, it is in the arms of another admirer that Giulietta glides away along the Canal out of the story, and out of Hoffmann's life.
THE EPILOGUE
Scene : The Nuremburg Wine Cellar
Disillusioned and drowsy, Hoffmann seos a vision of his Muse, who assures him that in future his dreams shall be of her alone.
Thorpe Bates (Baritone)
Carys Davies (Mezzo-Soprano)

The Tales of Hoffmann

Music by Jacques Offenbach
English words by Edward Agate
Though he had passionately wished to live to hear the premier of the opera he loved beyond all the others he had written, Offenbach was already dead when The Tales of Hoffmann was introduced to a Paris audience in February, 1881. He had a posthumous reward, however, for it is mainly owing to the success and popularity of The Tales of Hoffmann that Offenbach's name is still a live one. The recent revivals of two of his operettas, La Vie Parisienne and Helen, have not appreciably enhanced Offenbach's standing as an immortal; but The Tales of Hoffmann is in another category, and there is no reason why it should not remain in the repertory for as long as opera is a popular entertainment. The hero of the opera is, in a sense, the writer, Ernst Theodor Hoffmann, the author of the Tales on which the several scenes of this opera are based. The real Hoffmann was a very remarkable man, and his life was actually a little more fantastic than that of his operatic deputy. He taught music and was a composer of some standing in his day; he was a journalist and wrote several stories, many of which are in the classics of literature; he was a clever draftsman and had a reputation as a caricaturist, and in order to gain a living he practised as a lawyer.

'Twelve Plays for Broadcasting '—XI ' THE PATH OF GLORY'

(First Broadcast on January 16, 1931)
The cast includes: Robert Speaight , Franklyn Bellamy , John Cheatle , Kenneth Ellis , John Rorke , Martin Adeson , Harvey Braban , Rudolph de Cordova , Lionel Scott , Hector Abbas , Herbert de Leon , Alfred Gray , Wilfrid Fletcher , Gladys Young , Ernest Digges , Stephen Haggard , Sheila Borrett , Dorothy Tetley , Nigel Clarke , Eric Anderson , Arthur Goullet , Edward Craven , Stanley Vine, Bi!lie Sinclair, Beatrice Gilbert , Elizabeth Addison
This amusing and cynical extravaganza was first produced on January 16, 1931, and revived on April 8, 1932. It concerns the art of losing wars and the reason for losing them. The Republic of Thalia declares war on the Kingdom of Sardonia (both in the Balkans) and in order to lose it, gives the command of its army to the most incompetent ' dug-out ' it can find. ' If Ferranzi can only keep a battle going long enough he is practically bound to lose it,' says the President of Thalia. Ferranzi is opposed, however, by an even worse general than himself, the King of Sardonia in person. What happened when an ardent young patriot took charge of affairs is told brilliantly in this humorous play with its vivid war scenes and caustic wit.

The Exhibition of Chinese Art at Burlington House

(a) Ceramics: Leigh Ashton
(b) Chinese Painting as it appears to an Authority on European Painting: Kenneth Clark
The two talks this evening will be concerned with the two aspects of Chinese art most familiar to us: china, porcelain, pottery, etc., and painting.
Mr. Leigh Ashton, one of the greatest authorities in this country on Chinese ceramics, is curator of the Chinese exhibits at the Victoria and Albert Museum. Moreover, he has been solely responsible for 'the arrangement, lighting, and decoration of Burlington House for this Exhibition.
Mr. Kenneth Clark, Director of the National Gallery, has been asked to give the second talk because it is felt that someone who understands Western painting so thoroughly will have the same reactions to the paintings in Burlington House as those of us who go there and those of us who this evening will be listening. He will, therefore, look at the paintings through Western eyes.

'THE OLD LADY SHOWS HER MEDALS'

By J. M. Barrie , adapted for broadcasting by Harold Wightman
The scene is the home of Mrs. Dowey in London during the Great
War
Production by Gordon Gildard
This war-time play tells of an old Scottish charwoman in London. She had no children of her own, but when war broke out she grew jealous of the other charwomen and boasted that a certain Private
Kenneth Dowey of the Black Watch was her son and wrote to her regularly. How Private Dowey came to hear of this and the consequences of his visit are shown in scenes that display Barrie's mastery of pathos and humour.
The cast includes several members of the Ardrossan and Saltcoats
Players. It will be recalled that some years ago the team from these two Ayrshire communities won the Howard de Walden Cup of Great Britain and the Belasco Cup in New York for its performances.
