Chorus of Officers Ancestors Professional Bridesmaids and Villagers. The Fishing Village of Rederring in Cornwall, The Picture Gallery in Ruddigore Castle. Early in the 19th Century, When the D Oyly Carte Opera Company revived Ruddigore during their 1920 21. season at the Prince s Theatre it was a significantly different opera from that which. had been performed at the Savoy during its initial run Several musical numbers had. been cut and a new overture arranged by Geoffrey Toye Although the company. eventually restored some of the cut numbers this was essentially the version of the. opera they presented until the company closed in 1982. Ruddigore had been significantly revised by Gilbert and Sullivan during the early. days of its original run dialogue was pruned the second verses of a couple of songs. were cut a new song was provided for Robin in Act II the chorus of Bucks and. Blades were brought on to provide partners for the Bridesmaids at the end of the. opera instead of the chorus of Ancestors who originally had all been brought back to. life and the title was changed from Ruddygore to its present form. The aim of this libretto which has been compiled with reference Gilbert s Original. Plays Third Series and the vocal score published by Chappell during Sullivan s. lifetime is to present the work as finally revised by Gilbert and Sullivan themselves. Footnotes have been provided and reference to these should provide answers to. questions such as Why is the text of this libretto different from one I already have. or Why are the words different on my recording Cuts made by the D Oyly Carte. Opera Company have been noted lyrics cut by Gilbert and Sullivan themselves. indicated but changes to the dialogue have not Other footnotes have been added. entirely capriciously, Finally I should like to thank Scott Farrell for his assistance in proofreading this.
Paul Howarth, February 2005, SCENE The fishing village of Rederring in Cornwall ROSE MAYBUD s cottage is. Enter Chorus of Bridesmaids They range themselves in front of ROSE s cottage. CHORUS OF BRIDESMAIDS, Fair is Rose as bright May day 2. Soft is Rose as warm west wind, Sweet is Rose as new mown hay. Rose is queen of maiden kind, Rose all glowing, With virgin blushes say. Is anybody going, To marry you to day, SOLO ZORAH, Every day as the days roll on.
Bridesmaids garb we gaily don, Sure that a maid so fairly famed. Can t long remain unclaimed, Hour by hour and day by day. Several months have passed away, Though she s the fairest flower that blows. No one has married Rose, Rose all glowing, With virgin blushes say. Is anybody going, To marry you to day, ZORAH Hour by hour and day by day.
Months have passed away, CHORUS Fair is Rose as bright Mayday etc. Enter DAME HANNAH from cottage 3, HANNAH Nay gentle maidens you sing well but vainly for Rose is still heart. free and looks but coldly upon her many suitors, ZORAH It s very disappointing Every young man in the village is in love with. her but they are appalled by her beauty and modesty and won t declare themselves. Ruddigore or, so until she makes her own choice there s no chance for anybody else. RUTH This is perhaps the only village in the world that possesses an endowed. corps of professional bridesmaids who are bound to be on duty every day from ten to. four and it is at least six months since our services were required The pious charity. by which we exist is practically wasted, ZOR We shall be disendowed that will be the end of it Dame Hannah you re.
a nice old person you could marry if you liked There s old Adam Robin s faithful. servant he loves you with all the frenzy of a boy of fourteen. HAN Nay that may never be for I am pledged, ALL To whom. HAN To an eternal maidenhood Many years ago I was betrothed to a god like. youth who woo d me under an assumed name But on the very day upon which our. wedding was to have been celebrated I discovered that he was no other than Sir. Roderic Murgatroyd one of the bad Baronets of Ruddigore and the uncle of the man. who now bears that title As a son of that accursed race he was no husband for an. honest girl so madly as I loved him I left him then and there He died but ten years. since but I never saw him again, ZOR But why should you not marry a bad Baronet of Ruddigore. RUTH All baronets are bad but was he worse than other baronets. HAN My child he was accursed, ZOR But who cursed him Not you I trust. HAN The curse is on all his line and has been ever since the time of Sir Rupert. the first Baronet Listen and you shall hear the legend. LEGEND HANNAH, Sir Rupert Murgatroyd, His leisure and his riches. He ruthlessly employed, In persecuting witches, With fear he d make them quake.
He d duck them in his lake, He d break their bones. With sticks and stones, And burn them at the stake. CHORUS This sport he much enjoyed 4, Did Rupert Murgatroyd. No sense of shame, Or pity came, To Rupert Murgatroyd. Once on the village green, A palsied hag he roasted.
And what took place I ween, Shook his composure boasted. For as the torture grim, Seized on each withered limb. The writhing dame, Mid fire and flame, The Witch s Curse. Yelled forth this curse on him, Each lord of Ruddigore. Despite his best endeavour, Shall do one crime or more.
Once every day for ever, This doom he can t defy, However he may try. For should he stay, His hand that day, In torture he shall die. The prophecy came true, Each heir who held the title. Had every day to do, Some crime of import vital, Until with guilt o erplied. I ll sin no more he cried, And on the day, He said that say.
In agony he died, CHORUS And thus with sinning cloyed. Has died each Murgatroyd, And so shall fall, Both one and all. Each coming Murgatroyd, Exeunt Chorus of Bridesmaids. Enter ROSE MAYBUD from cottage with small basket on her arm. HAN Whither away dear Rose On some errand of charity as is thy wont. ROSE A few gifts dear aunt for deserving villagers Lo here is some. peppermint rock for old gaffer Gadderby a set of false teeth for pretty little Ruth. Rowbottom and a pound of snuff for the poor orphan girl on the hill. HAN Ah Rose pity that so much goodness should not help to make some gallant. youth happy for life Rose why dost thou harden that little heart of thine Is there. none hereaway whom thou could st love, ROSE And if there were such an one verily it would ill become me to tell him. HAN Nay dear one where true love is there is little need of prim formality. ROSE Hush dear aunt for thy words pain me sorely Hung in a plated dish. cover to the knocker of the workhouse door with naught that I could call mine own. save a change of baby linen and a book of etiquette little wonder if I have always. regarded that work as a voice from a parent s tomb This hallowed volume. producing a book of etiquette composed if I may believe the title page by no less. an authority than the wife of a Lord Mayor has been through life my guide and. monitor By its solemn precepts I have learnt to test the moral worth of all who. approach me The man who bites his bread or eats peas with a knife I look upon as a. Ruddigore or, lost creature and he who has not acquired the proper way of entering and leaving a.
room is the object of my pitying horror There are those in this village who bite their. nails dear aunt and nearly all are wont to use their pocket combs in public places In. truth I could pursue this painful theme much further but behold I have said enough. HAN But is there not one among them who is faultless in thine eyes For. example young Robin He combines the manners of a Marquis with the morals of a. Methodist Could st thou not love him, ROSE And even if I could how should I confess it unto him For lo he is shy. and sayeth naught, BALLAD ROSE, If somebody there chanced to be. Who loved me in a manner true, My heart would point him out to me. And I would point him out to you, Referring But here it says of those who point. to book Their manners must be out of joint, You may not point.
You must not point, It s manners out of joint to point. Ah Had I the love of such as he, Some quiet spot he d take me to. Then he could whisper it to me, And I could whisper it to you. Referring But whispering I ve somewhere met, to book Is contrary to etiquette. Where can it be Searching book, Now let me see Finding reference.
It s contrary to etiquette, Showing it to DAME HANNAH. If any well bred youth I knew, Polite and gentle neat and trim. Then I would hint as much to you, And you could hint as much to him. Referring But here it says in plainest print, to book It s most unladylike to hint. You may not hint, You must not hint, It says you mustn t hint in print.
Ah And if I loved him through and through, True love and not a passing whim. Then I could speak of it to you, And you could speak of it to him. Referring But here I find it doesn t do, The Witch s Curse. to book To speak until you re spoken to, Where can it be Searching book. Now let me see Finding reference, Don t speak until you re spoken to.
Exit DAME HANNAH, ROSE Poor aunt Little did the good soul think when she breathed the hallowed. name of Robin that he would do even as well as another But he resembleth all the. youths in this village in that he is unduly bashful in my presence and lo it is hard to. bring him to the point But soft he is here, ROSE is about to go when ROBIN enters and calls her. ROBIN Mistress Rose, ROSE surprised Master Robin, ROB I wished to say that it is fine. ROSE It is passing fine, ROB But we do want rain, ROSE Aye sorely Is that all. ROB sighing That is all, ROSE Good day Master Robin.
ROB Good day Mistress Rose Both going both stop, ROB I crave pardon I. I beg pardon I, ROSE You were about to say, ROB I would fain consult you. ROSE Truly, ROB It is about a friend, ROSE In truth I have a friend myself. ROB Indeed I mean of course, ROSE And I would fain consult you. ROB anxiously About him, ROSE prudishly About her, ROB relieved Let us consult one another.
DUET ROBIN AND ROSE, ROB I know a youth who loves a little maid. Hey but his face is a sight for to see, Silent is he for he s modest and afraid. Hey but he s timid as a youth can be, ROSE I know a maid who loves a gallant youth. Hey but she sickens as the days go by, She cannot tell him all the sad sad truth. Hey but I think that little maid will die, ROB Poor little man.
ROSE Poor little maid, Ruddigore or, ROB Poor little man. ROSE Poor little maid, BOTH Now tell me pray and tell me true. What in the world should the young man maiden do, ROB He cannot eat and he cannot sleep. Hey but his face is a sight for to see, Daily he goes for to wail for to weep. Hey but he s wretched as a youth can be, ROSE She s very thin and she s very pale.
Hey but she sickens as the days go by, Daily she goes for to weep for to wail. Hey but I think that little maid will die, ROB Poor little maid. ROSE Poor little man, ROB Poor little maid, ROSE Poor little man. BOTH Now tell me pray and tell me true, What in the world should the young man maiden do. ROSE If I were the youth I should offer her my name. Hey but her face is a sight for to see, ROB If were the maid I should fan his honest flame.
Hey but he s bashful as a youth can be, ROSE If I were the youth I should speak to her to day. Hey but she sickens as the days go by, ROB If I were the maid I should meet the lad half way. For I really do believe that timid youth will die, ROSE Poor little man. ROB Poor little maid, ROSE Poor little man, ROB Poor little maid. BOTH I thank you miss sir for your counsel true, I ll tell that youth maid what he she ought to do.
ROB Poor child I sometimes think that if she wasn t quite so particular I might. venture but no no even then I should be unworthy of her. He sit desponding Enter OLD ADAM, ADAM My kind master is sad Dear Sir Ruthven Murgatroyd. ROB Hush As you love me breathe not that hated name Twenty years ago in. horror at the prospect of inheriting that hideous title and with it the ban that compels. The Witch s Curse, all who succeed to the baronetcy to commit at least one deadly crime per day for life. I fled my home and concealed myself in this innocent village under the name of. Robin Oakapple My younger brother Despard believing me to be dead succeeded. to the title and its attendant curse For twenty years I have been dead and buried. Don t dig me up now, ADAM Dear master it shall be as you wish for have I not sworn to obey you for.
