ROBERT HOLLISTON, LAUREL ANDERSON, CHERYL COONEY i SYNOPSIS Lady Billows of Suffolk, producing a May Day festival, offers a prize for a May Queen whose virtue is beyond doubt. When such a young woman cannot be found, Lady Billows determines to have a May King, in the person of Albert Herring, a mother-dominated grocer's assistant. When a practical joker fills Herring's lemonade glass with rum, the May King becomes inebriated and disappears into the night, searching for dis-reputable pleasures. At first presumed dead, he returns to the village the following day, disheveled and haggard, but ready to fight for his newrwon emancipation. SCENES The action of the opera takes place in Loxford, a small market-town in East Suffolk, during April and May of the year 1900. ACT III ACT I Scene I — Scene II — ACT II Scene I — .
