Black Domino 1891Carl Rosa Opera Company

Read more about the opera Black Domino

Auber's comedy is a delightful piece of froth which should be better known nowadays. But as with a later master of the comic style, Offenbach, there seems to have been a slight gap between a form of humour that delighted the French and an entertainment that was appropriate and tasteful to British sensibilities. The adaptation seems, on this occasion to have fallen a bit flat, and the work did not survive for long.

The cast is as advertised in Glasgow.
