Ivanhoe 1895Carl Rosa Opera Company

Read more about the opera Ivanhoe

Richard D'Oyly Carte's plans for an English Opera House had ended quickly, in spite of the great success of its initial production, Sullivan's Ivanhoe. It was left to the Carl Rosa company to take the work round the country, in an impressively grand production which looked rather cramped on the stage of the Royalty - a smaller theatre than the one the company habitually used in Glasgow (but the Theatre Royal was being rebuilt following a fire).

The cast is that for April 23, as reviewed in the Glasgow Herald of the following day. A cast is also given in the Scotsman of 16 May for that evening.
