One of Novello's most popular and successful musicals, The Dancing Years opened in London on 23 March 1939. It was an expensive, spectacular production, set against the rise of the Nazis in Germany. Novello (pictured) played a penniless composer in love with two women from very different social classes, one being an innkeeper's daughter and the other an opera singer.
