Read more about the opera Carmen

This performance was billed as marking Zélie de Lussan's return to the company - she had spent the 1894-5 season in her home city of New York, working at the Met. Of equal importance to the long-term survival of the company was the arrival of young bass Arthur Winckworth.

The cast is from a programme held in the National LIbrary of Scotland (NLS).
