The pot-pourri of hits from famous English musical shows is well established as a popular broadcasting item. Little, so far, however, has been heard of the theatre music of France, to which the whole of tonight’s programme will be devoted.

Some French theatre composers, such as Offenbach, Messager, Lecocq, and Planquette are well known over here, but it is not only with these that the programme will be concerned. The operettas of Reynaldo Hahn , for example, are little known over here. Likewise those of Louis Ganne. These two composers have reputations in this country as a song-writer and an orchestral composer respectively. The songs, by the way, will all be sung in English.

 TANTIVY TOWERSBBC Home Service Basic, 14 November 1940 20.00 A light opera in three acts, abridged and adapted for broadcasting, Libretto by A. P. Herbert. Music by Thomas F. Dunhill. BBC Theatre Chorus, BBC Theatre Orchestra (leader Tate Gilder). Conductor, Stanford Robinson. Produced by.Gordon McConnel, with the musical collaboration of Gwen Williams.

This light opera in three acts was produced by Sir Nigel Playfair at the Lyric Theatre, Hammersmith, on January 16, 1931. It proved one of the most successful productions of his management, and the box-office receipts broke all records for that theatre. After a run of several months it was transferred to the New Theatre in the West End, where it flourished far into the summer months, and afterwards it went on tour to the principal towns in England and Scotland with great success.

The music of Tantivy Towers is continuous ; there is no spoken dialogue. Although it is a real comic opera, and full of wit and satirical humour, the subject has its serious side, and some of the incidents are very dramatic. The treatment, however, is light throughout, and the theme of the work, stated briefly, is the conflict between the artistic set and the county set. The author of the libretto, it may be said, is quite conscious of the shortcomings of both. The cutting of the score for this production has been carried out by the composer himself.

Hugh Heather (a singer): Webster Booth, Jenny Jay (a would-be painter): Betty Huntley-Wright, The Earl of Tantivy: Percy Heming, The Countess of Tantivy: Gladys Parr, Lady Ann Gallop (their daughter): Anne Ziegler, Charles Viscount Harkaway (their son): Roy Henderson, Captain Bareback, M F H: Dennis Noble,
