While singers may have become bored with the continuous repetition of standard works, there can be no doubt that they provided a good steady income. Some, like John Child, Josephine Yorke and Aynsley Cook, sang these roles regularly for years. For Alec Marsh and the ladies on the spring tour, such performances may have been more of a rarity. In the spring season, Bo Girl was also in the repertoire of the second Carl Rosa team, Marie Roze's Carmen company, and their performances in Edinburgh and Glasgow were in consecutive weeks alternating with the main group.

Casts are as advertised.
