Trovatore 1916Carl Rosa Opera Company

Read more about the opera Trovatore

The midweek items on this Carl Rosa schedule were Faust on the Wednesday and Trovatore on the Thursday. This cast is from a programme in the A M Gardiner collection at the Mitchell Library. As was customary then, the names of artists, presumably choristers, who took the few lines allotted to minor characters such as the Old Gypsy and the Messenger were omitted.

The soprano Eleanor Felix is a new recruit to Carl Rosa, and would visit Scotland again the following year, again in Il  trovatore. However that was with the O'Mara company.
