NOTES

Jane Annie, or The Good Conduct Prize is a comic opera written in 1893 by J. M. Barrie and Arthur Conan Doyle, with music by Ernest Ford, a conductor and occasional composer. Barrie was then a journalist and a novelist with a few popular books to his credit. He had not yet created his classic Peter Pan, and when Barrie could not finish the libretto he persuaded his friend Conan Doyle – already popular for his Sherlock Holmes mysteries – to work on it. Conan Doyle finished the piece but was constrained by Barrie's work.
