Fictional composer of the opera Csaritsa in the 1937 movie Maytime. No first name given. Played by Paul Porcasi.

The opera was especially composed for internationally famed opera diva Marcia Mornay (Jeanette MacDonald), circa 1865. Mornay has a tragic love affair with fellow opera singer Paul Allison (Nelson Eddy).

Composer and conductor Herbert Stothart composed the opera, based on work of Tchaikowsky.

The film Maytime is based on a 1917 musical/operetta of the same name by Sigmund Romberg and Rida Johnson Young, but in that version, as well as the 1923 silent film version, nobody is a composer, or singer, or famous.
