Read more about the opera Nadeshda

Forty years before, when Goring Thomas's second opera had been launched by the Carl Rosa, Scottish performances had only been given in the central belt. The more famous Esmeralda was equally unfamiliar on Tayside, so for the Dundee amateur group to choose Nadeshda shows a great deal of enterprise.

The lighter work played on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday was The Yeomen of the Guard. At this stage, Dundee Operatic did not often do G & S, but it may be that they wanted a clear banker to offset the definite commercial risk presented by mounting such a rarity as the serious element of the week's programme.
