Read more about the opera Lucrezia Borgia

Lucrezia Borgia held its popularity in the nineteenth century while singing actresses such as Tietjens performed it. However it never featured in the repertoire of later companies such as Carl Rosa or Moody-Manners - indeed of Donizetti's vast output of serious operas, only Lucia continued to appear occasionally, and that in such a butchered and abbreviated form that it was impossible for audiences to understand its true quality.

Other performers mentioned in the Advertiser's review of the Dundee performance were not assigned to roles. They are Mr J F Cook, Mr John Manley, Mr T A Wylde, Mr C M Blythe, Mr Coyle and Mr Ball.

Further Scottish dates to be confirmed.
