Read more about the opera Utopia, Limited

A week of Gilbert & Sullivan repertoire works - six evenings, with six different works - was a commonplace of entertainment in late-Victorian theatres. Dundee on this occasion saw The Mikado on Monday, The Gondoliers on Tuesday, Pirates of Penzance on Wednesday, Patience on Thursday, and The Yeomen of the Guard on Saturday. Friday was traditionality the evening when touring opera companies did any unfamiliar work, so that there was time for the local pit band to study the music. Utopia Limited had been very successful in the central belt in 1894, but had not then travelled as far north as Dundee.

Additional dates to be added.
