The personnel of Tayside Opera have always been enthusiastic Verdins, and in the first couple of decades, led by principal baritone William Dewar, this was especially the case. Perhaps it was surprising that they should take so long to get round to Nabucco, but here the barrier of casting the fiendish role of Abigaille was overcome by using a local soprano, Elizabeth Watson, who had spent several years in the chorus, but had no difficulties with the part. She even sang five performances without a break.
