CARYLL, IVAN    The Pink Lady.  Musical Comedy in Three Acts.

            Book & Lyrics by C. M. S. Mc Lellan.  Note:  This delightful musical comedy was the smash hit of 1911, and the song "The Kiss Waltz"       

            is still heard occasionally.

CROOK, JOHN    Peter Pan; or, The Boy Who Would Not Grow Up.  Fantasy in Five Acts.

            Book & Lyrics by Sir J. M. Barrie.  Note:  This is the original musical score to accompany Barrie's famous fantasy.  The play, when                

            performed today, is frequently done without music or with other more recent scores.  In fact, this original score by Crook is an integral part of

            the drama and Barrie never intended for the play to be performed without it.

                     Vocal score:    $20.00    (Available in U. S. only)  

 

GERMAN, SIR EDWARD    Fallen Fairies; or, The Wicked World.  Opera in Two Acts.

HUMPERDINCK, ENGELBERT  Dornröschen.  Opera in a Prelude and Three Acts.

HUMPERDINCK, ENGELBERT   Königskinder.  Opera in Three Acts.

            Libretto by Ernst Rosmer (Elsa Bernstein Porges).  Note:  Humperdinck, while better known for his earlier masterwork "Hänsel und Gretel,"

            considered "Königskinder" to be his finest achievement.  When premiered by the Metropolitan Opera in 1910, "Königskinder" was hailed

            as the greatest opera since Wagner's "Parsifal," written nearly thirty years earlier.

            Libretto by Julian Sturgis.  Note:  This is Sullivan's only through-sung grand opera, first performed in 1891.  It was a critical and popular

            success but a financial failure due to the expense of the production.

                       Vocal Score:    $40.00        Libretto:    $7.00
