The Glasgow performance of 22 April is described in the programme as 'First Time in Scotland by this Company'.

The spring cast at the Lyceum does seem to have found the orchestration rather overpowering.

Performers are as advertised, augmented by Scotsman reviews on May 13. Programmes for the performances on 22 and 25 April are preserved in the Mitchell Library.
