As with every season since 1944, the Carl Rosa's Scottish visit in 1949 consisted of four weeks at Glasgow Theattre Royal, commencing this time on Monday 18 April. The programme included familiar works by Rossini (Barber); Verdi (Trovatore, Traviata); Puccini (Bohème, Tosca, Butterfly); Gounod (Faust) and Bizet (Carmen). There was one extremely enterprising novelty in the delightful form of The Kiss by Smetana, receiving its Scottish premiere.

The week commencing 11 April was at His Majesty's, Aberdeen, with a schedule as follows: Mon Faust; Tue Bohème; Wed Barber; Thu Carmen; Fri The Kiss; Sat mat Butterfly; Sat eve Trovatore. Cast details are from a programme for 11 April in Aberdeen City Library.
