Faust 1917O'Mara Grand Opera Company

Read more about the opera Faust

O'Mara's spring 1917 tour only included two weeks in Scotland, Aberdeen and Dundee, and only the second of those saw a performance of Faust. It was in the repertoire for the autumn visit, being performed in all three cities - Aberdeen was not visited this time (Date of Glasgow performance to be confirmed). It is noticeable that the company has undergone a substantial change in personnel during the summer break.

March cast is as advertised for the Saturday matinee in Dundee. The October cast is from Dundee Advertiser and Dundee Courier & Argus for Friday 12 October.
