Fidelio 1907Carl Rosa Opera Company

Read more about the opera Fidelio

At this stage of operatic history in the UK, Fidelio was almost as much of a rarity as The Merry Wives of Windsor, performed the previous evening. These two unusual pieces were sandwiched between performances of the rather more popular Faust and Il Trovatore.

The cast details are drawn from a programme in the NLS collection in Edinburgh.
