By no means a routine revival of the 1974 production by John Copley. There was a superb cast and very dramatic conducting by Henry Lewis. Equally, if not more, important was the respect at last shown to Donizetti and Cammarano, in that the score was performed in its entirety instead of in the abbreviated state that had become the tradition. This may be the first occasion at which the opera was given complete in Scotland.
