Read more about the opera Gondoliers

This Scottish tour began with a week in Edinburgh from 3 August, followed by two weeks in Glasgow from 10 August. A week in Aberdeen followed, starting  24 August. The Dundee week commencing Monday 31 August was the final leg. As usual the main D'Oyly Carte touring company had visited the four cities with commercially successful results. Clearly, with war breaking out during the course of the tour, it would be expected that audiences were in need of cheering up.

The repertoire for the week was Monday The Gondoliers; Tuesday The Mikado; Wednesday Patience, Thursday Princess Ida; Friday The Yeomen of the Guard; Saturday mat Iolanthe; and eve The Mikado again.

The cast is as reviewed in the Dundee Advertiser.
