The Cingalee (Daly’s, 5 March 1904) was exotically set on a tea plantation in what was then Ceylon and is today Sri Lanka. My cinnamon tree is sung by the Cingalese tea-picker of the title, Nanoya (Sybil Arundale), and Pearl of sweet Ceylon by the romantic lead, tea plantation owner Harry Vereker (Hayden Coffin). Their mutual love is finally rewarded.
