This was the first week of a three week visit - the first occasion on which the recently-formed BNOC came to Glasgow. While Faust may have seemed a rather unenterprising choice, it had the benefit of familiarity - a useful factor when the next evening was to see orchestra and chorus tackle a rare performance of Charpentier's Louise, in a staging inherited from the defunct Beecham company.

Cast details are from a programme in the A M Gardiner collection in the Mitchell Library.
