Carl Rosa: from ‘juvenile Paganini’ to operatic entrepreneur

The man who did most to bring opera to Scotland (and indeed Britain) in the golden age of opera, the late nineteenth century, was Karl Rose, a native of Hamburg and by turns a citizen of the USA and finally of Britain. He was active in Britain with Carl Rosa Opera from 1873 until his death in 1889, at the early age of 47.

Iain will explain his research activity and offer some consideration of the business practices that helped Rosa earn his fortune.
