Read more about the opera Tosca

This two week visit to Glasgow by the Covent Garden company gave Scottish audiences their first opportunity to see two new works - not just the Festival of Britain commission, Billy Budd, but also a fascinating late work by Vaughan Williams, The Pilgrim's Progress.

The schedule for the fortnight was:

Week commencing 17 March: Mon Turandot, Tue Pilgrim's Progress, Wed Salome, Thu Magic Flute, Fri Aïda, Sat mat Bohème, Sat eve Tosca.

Week commencing 24 March: Mon Aïda, Tue Salome, Wed Magic Flute, Thu Bohème, Fri Billy Budd, Sat mat Tosca, Sat eve Turandot.

Cast details are from our copy of the programme for 22 March.

The final Saturday of the visit  (29 March) consisted of Tosca at the matinee and Turandot at night. It seems rather unlikely that Maria Kinasiewicz could have sung both, but we need clarification of those casts.
