Most of the 1927 cast returned for this run.

The only changes among the principals in the Barber were William Michael and William Anderson, succeeding Dennis Noble and Herbert Langley as Figaro and Basilio.

In the Lesson Scene, Noël Eadie sang a coloratura showpiece, the famous Laughing Song from Auber's treatment of the Manon Lescaut story.

Cast details are taken from a programme in the NLS.
