If it seems strange that the first performance in Scotland of Wagner's great comedy should be given by a London management with their singers performing in Italian (I maestricantori di Norimbergo), then at least the Italian members of that company were among the leading singers of the day.

The Irish tenor Joseph O'Mara was at the start of a lengthy career as one of the leading dramatic tenors on the British stage, and had studied in Italy, so was probably quite happy singing this translation.
