Subtitled 'The King, the Goddess and the Fays of Fairyland, or, Harlequin Pygmalion and the Golden Demon of the Yawning Chasm', this burlesque pantomime was adapted and localised by Walch from an as-yet-unidentified source. Among the topical hits were references to Prince Alfred, the Duke of Edinburgh, while the transformation scene depicted the Flying Squadron entering Sydney Heads (Sydney Morning Herald 24 and 28 December 1869, p.8).
The score for the production included original songs and incidental music by Andrew Moore, along with popular songs of the day.
1869: Adelphi Theatre, Sydney, 24 December 1869 - 3 February 1870.
