Bohemian Girl 1870Corri's Grand English Opera Company

In what seems to be a fairly standard performance, two features stand out. Firstly, Haydn Corri had chosen the work for his benefit, perhaps caring less about playing a role that show his talents to best advantage, and more about a popular work that would generate the highest take for him.

Secondly, it marked the first performance of the title role by Fanny Harrison. Previously heard in mezzo-roles (indeed she had previously sung Queen of the Gypsies), it seems she was now trying out some higher parts as well.
