After dinner I go with Grace (her tickets) to R.C.M. to see Vaughan William's Hugh the Drover.* It needs a larger stage, of course - even so the First Act was very exciting & the rest was a dreadful anticlimax. V.W. has shown in places apt use of chorus, in others dreadful disregard of natural movements. The music was full of folk-song. (if you like that sort of think) - it was best so - when not (as between Scenes in Act II), it was dreadful. Mona Benson (excellent) & Trefor Jones & Mable Ritchie (good towards end) Leyland White - v. good.
