Read more about the opera Trovatore

A mixed week of opera at this time scarcely seemed complete without Trovatore. Perhaps the critics were getting slightly blasé - the Aberdeen Journal and Dundee Courier didn't cover it, leaving just the Dundee Advertiser to supply this cast of what was clearly an enjoyable performance.

The schedule was:

Aberdeen W/c 23 Mar: Mon Maritana, Tue Lily of Killarney, Wed Trovatore, Thu Marriage of Figaro, Fri Faust, Sat Sonnambula.

Dundee W/c 30 Mar: Mon Figaro, Tue Maritana, Wed Lily of Killarney, Thu Faust, Fri Trovatore, Sat Don Giovanni.

Further dates (Edinburgh and Glasgow) to be confirmed. Figaro was given in Edinburgh on 2 March.
