Read more about the opera Faust

Faust was staple repertoire for the major touring companies, and the leading singers took the major parts on a regular basis. However, in addition to Moody and Manners themselves, these casts show some younger artists with important careers ahead of them, including Lewys James and Olive Westwood.

The Glasgow cast for 18 October is drawn from a programme in the Mitchell Library collection.
