Bethley Kauffman-Mayer et al. in Basel - 23 October, 1934

from Journeying boy : the diaries of the young Benjamin Britten 1928-1938, page 229:

After dinner at the Eisingers, Bethly takes Mum & me to see Rigoletto at the Stadtheater with Georges Berklanoff as R. Quite a good show, & B. is splendid - with a very charming (to look at, & musically) Gilda (Irma Handler). Waht lovely music tho' - just right.
