This performance, the only one given on the Scottish tour was reviewed in the Scotsman (3 April). The reviewer recorded "the performance was cordially recieved by a large audience. The piece was rendered by a strong team of soloists who, individually and collectively, contributed to a successful evening's entertainment."

Playing the minstrels were Hubert Dunkerley, George Hancock, John Torney, Liddle Peddieson, and Norman Jones.

This was part of Carl Rosa Opera's 1937 tour. (They had missed out visiting Scotland in 1936).

A conventional repertoire was presented for a week at the King's Theatre Edinburgh, followed by two weeks at the King's Theatre Glasgow.
