On 25 April, Zélie de Lussan was unable to appear. This was Pauline Joran's final tour with Carl Rosa before joining Augustus Harris at Covent Garden - perhaps not a problem for casting this role, but her part of Beppe in L'Amico Fritz also required her to play the violin!

A programe for Monday 20 November is archived in the Mitchell Library.
