Read more about the opera Mefistofele

The 1912-13 season seems to be the only year that Mefistofele was performed by the Carl Rosa organisation after its first attempt back in 1884. It opened on 7 September 1912 during a visit to one of London's many provincial theatres, the Marlborough at Holloway. The opera was performed several times at Covent Garden in the early part of the century. The only British professional company to have staged it since the war is Welsh National, in 1957, though Glasgow Grand gave ir a whirl, with some success, in 1951.
