New – Trooper, The Royal Horse Guards (The Blues) Template up on my blog:

You Beauty! This one will be filled in and on my blog within the next few hours.

Many thanks :-)

Excellent! Good to see the template in use so quickly too. :-)

Prinz Friedrich is so well pleased, he ordered a contralto AND a mezzosoprano for his postprandial entertainments.

David: another pleasant and, obviously, useful template!
After 'The Blues', what about 'The Reds' (I mean the 'Life' ones)?

Mulopwepaul: maybe here in Monte-Cristo we are 'dirty minded', but we do have suspicions and make (educated?) guess about Prinz Friedrich's "postprandial entertainments"…

The ladies selected from among the Bruttig Opera and Ballet Company for these command performances have invariably been returned physically unharmed and unmolested after their evenings with the Pfalzgraf. Nonetheless, the sad litany of abuse of laudanum or sweet oil of vitriol, hysterical insomnia and neuropathy amongst the chanteuses honoured by such command performances has begun to cast a shadow over the entire company.

The bizarre suicide of Josefa Wendlin, the previous coloratura at the company has been ascribed to a tragic love triangle and is understood to have been completely unrelated to her several private performances with Prinz Friedrich. Her Italian replacement has received the most glowing notices, and is applauded by all subscribers, including Prinz Friedrich, for whom she has lately performed her first private recital.

What does go uncounted, of course, is the number of ambitious young girls from the Waldreck villages and countryside who, imaginations inflamed by unscrupulous traveling hucksters styling themselves "impresarios" in the Italian fashion, abandon their lives of parochial drudgery for dreams of the life of a prima donna, setting out for Bruttig never to be heard from by their families again…

Good to see 2 instances of the template in use so quickly! :-)

But it is a shock then to plunge into the seedy underworld of Waldreck – is there an 18th century Hercule Poirot on the case? Perhaps agents from Monte-Cristo…?
