Programme Note
Lennox Berkeley A Dinner Engagement (1954)

An impoverished member of the English aristocracy and his wife are awaiting the arrival of their dinner guests, the Grand Duchess and her gourmet son, Phillippe, whom they hope will be interested in their daughter, Susan. The elaborate preparations go wrong and at the worst possible moment, their guests arrive through the back door. The Prince, however, does fall in love with Susan and all ends happily, with an instant betrothal.
