Glade. Site of the pastoral scene that opens act 2, with the Lady Jane (one of the Rapturous Maidens) playing on a violincello as the chorus is heard singing in the distance. The libretto specified a small pond in the center, a tree stump, and a rock. The tree stump is an essential part of the action; for Bunthorne, it is a surface on which to scribble a poem, a rest stop during the floral procession at the end of act I, and an obstacle in his attempt to evade Lady Jane after their duet. For her, it is a cello stand. Thus, an ordinary piece of stage decor becomes a means to further farcical action and to mock certain attitudes.
