Read more about the opera Rigoletto

Perhaps surprisingly, Rigoletto was the sole Verdi work included on this tour under the management of Eugene Iskoldoff and Peter Daubeny. There were three Puccini works (Bohème, Tosca, Butterfly) plus Cav and Pag. The tour began in September, with five weeks at the Palace Theatre in London. The provincial tour was the same length, with two weeks in Manchester and Glasgow, separated by a single week in Newcastle.

These cast details, from Opera, are for a London performance on 3 October, not much liked with the excepetion of Anna di Stasio's Maddalena. Any further details for Glasgow to be confirmed.
