Bohème 1951Carl Rosa Opera Company

Read more about the opera Bohème

The Carl Rosa week in Aberdeen, commencing Monday 30 April, contained one relative novelty by Wagner, but was otherwise much as usual. The conductors Arthur Hammond and Maurits Sillem would also remain fixtures for several years. It is noticeable that on this occasion the Chorus Master is Alexander Faris, the Repetiteur Edward Downes. Maybe these two would rarely be seen in Scotland, but they certainly had prominent careers elsewhere.

The schedule was: Mon Cav & Pag; Tue Rigoletto; Wed Bohème; Thu Carmen; Fri Flying Dutchman; Sat mat Madam Butterfly; Sat eve Barber of Seville.

Cast details are from a programme in Aberdeen City Library.
