After Georgina Burns and Leslie Crotty left the Carl Rosa company 1n 1891-2 to set up on their own, they mounted a lavish staging of Rossini's Cinderella. This was chosen, according to their first conductor Henry Wood, because it was not a work that had featured in the Carl Rosa repertoire.

As the tour continued, however (and Wood had returned to London to work on the British premiere of Eugene Onegin), Burns and Crotty changed tack slightly, introducing a single performance on Saturday nights 'by desire' of the perennially popular Balfe work. The couple were themselves advertised as taking part, but no other casting details were released.

In the apparent absence of any press notices, full casts remain to be discovered.

Further tour dates to be confirmed.
