Read more about the opera Golden Cockerel

This delightful satirical comedy, Rimsky's last opera, had featured in the repertoire of the Beecham company, and first appeared in Scotland in 1918. Several of that organization's sets and costumes were taken over by BNOC, and this was presumably one of them. The cast list includes Olive Joyner as Principal Dancer. Whether that included appearing as the Cockerel, thus allowing Eda Bennie to sing from offstage (as in Scottish Opera's staging half a century later) is yet to be established.

Cast details are from a copy of the programme in the Mitchell Library.
