About The Valley of Song:

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".
