Nozze di Figaro 1942Carl Rosa Opera Company

Read more about the opera Marriage of Figaro

Figaro was perhaps surprisingly unfamiliar to local audiences, far less frequently performed than Rossini's Barber.

The Carl Rosa usually had its own orchestral players at the principal desks, supplemented by local musicians. To hire the Scottish Orchestra for this visit seems an unusual wartime experiment.

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