Read more about the opera Louise

Louise was something of a rarity, so, as was usual in such cases, the performance took place towards the end of the week (on a Thursday), to give the musicians some extra rehearsal time. The opera only has four significant roles, Louise, her parents and her lover, Julien.

The other characters are individually of little significance, and for the most part provided little more than background atmospherics. Even so, while most of them are portrayed by chorus members, a significant number of leading company principals did short turns, including Eda Bennie, May Blyth, Doris Lemon, Tudor Davies, Sydney Russell and Wlliam Anderson.

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