Part of the talent behind the Adams House Musical Society's production of Johann Strauss' "Gypsy Baron" is shown in rehearsal, registering a mixed reaction to Mr. Strauss' music. In a not unusual order, they are James Perrin '50, Marjorie Samsel, and William S. Wheeling '50, and (far right) Fred H. Gwynne '51.
The local talent comes from Harvard, Radcliffe, Longy School, Boston University, and the New England Conservatory of Music. Other members of the supporting cast are Adele Milhendler, Claire Wilson, Walter O. Aikman '51, and Paul Tibbetts.
The people that this cast will be supporting on the November 16 opening are Polyna Stoska, the first Metropolitan Opera singer to step before undergraduate footlights at Harvard, and Tanglewood tenor Raymond Smolover.
William B. Perry '51 is musical director, Adele Hooper is in charge of choreography, and Stephen O. Saxe '51 designed the sets.
