Erminie Pianoforte & Vocal Score

£35.00

Product description

Performed at the Royal Comedy Theatre, London, ERMINIE, Comic Opera, Libretto by Claxson Bellamy, and Harry Paulton. Music by Ed: Jakabowski. Published by JOSEPH WILLIAMS, Limited. 32, Great Portland Street, London. 

 In Erminie the two villains become the classy criminal Ravannes and his clumsy side-kick Cadeaux. Having escaped from jail, they waylay Ernest, Vicomte de Brissac, who is on his way to meet his promised bride, the Marquis de Pontvert's daughter Erminie, whom he has never met. With thoughts of further theft, Ravannes poses as the Vicomte, with Cadeaux as a supposed Baron whose comic turn of phrase provides the major fun of the piece. Their intervention finally derails plans sufficiently to secure Erminie's marriage to her real lover, the Marquis's secretary Eugène.

The booklet is in very good condition, with little to no sign of water damage. The edges of the pages are speckled. The gilded lettering on the cover is bright and well preserved, on both the front and back panels. There is visible foxing, bumping and discolouration on the edges of the pages, but the spine is strong and intact. Water damage is visible on the pages but does not effect legibility. The ink is not affected; it is still clearly intact and fully visible. There is a stamped signature of Arthur Sullivan on the inside page.
