Very formal, very antiquated. Once in a while you'll hear it used humorously when the speaker is pretending to be very educated.
It was possibly in the novel "Sayonara" that one of the few expressions a girl knew in English was "Alas, the pavilion is on fire!" I'm sure there was a lot of use for such a practical phrase.
