Trovatore 1916O'Mara Grand Opera Company

Read more about the opera Trovatore

This week in Dundee by the O'Mara group, starting Monday 28 February 1916, ran as follows: Mon Trovatore; Tue Carmen; Wed Tannhäuser; Thu Butterfly; Fri Huguenots; Sat mat Lucia; Sat eve Faust. The Meyerbeer and Donizetti were about to disappear from the general repertoire for several decades.

It is an anomoly of the touring schedules at this time that the Carl Rosa company did not travel morth of the central belt, leaving the more northerly regions to O'Mara. The visits were almost simultaneous, though, and the Rosa team performed Trovatore in Glasgow soon after, on 9 March.

Cast details are from the review in the Dundee Courier & Argus.

Further tour dates to be confirmed.
