Synopsis

Naples, 1840. A rascally Colonel in the Austrian Army of Occupation plans revenge on a girl who has rebuffed him - Laura, one of the two daughters of an impoverished Italian Countess. He releases two young prisoners on condition they masquerade as a wealthy Prince and his secretary. The ‘Prince’ has to win Laura’s hand, and then humiliate her. How the young men fall in love with the two girls and completely turn the tables on the Colonel is splendidly told in this tuneful operetta.

Synopsis

Ivor Novello intended this to be his next West End show. When he died in 1950, the work was completed by Christopher Hassall - who had worked with Novello for many years - and adapted by Phil Park and Ronald Hanmer for the amateur stage.

Set in Wales and Venice, the story concerns the love of a young Welsh choirmaster, David, for his leading soprano, Lily, who has ambitions to become an opera star. Following an affair with an Italian ‘Count’, she loses her voice - but regains it on being reunited with her true love on his return from the war, wounded but safe. With plenty of chorus work, the musical numbers include: I Know a Valley, Rainbow in the Fountain, Look in my Heart and Soldier Lad.
