Read more about the opera Faust

The Rosa visited Falkirk for two nights only, following a performance of Carmen on Monday 28 February with one of Faust the next night.

According to the Falkirk Herald (19 February) "the large orchestra, over forty in number, will necessitate the removal of the entire first two rows of the orchestra stalls."

The visit coincided with a week of performances in Edinburgh by Denhoff and Rosa forces combined.  These included the first provincial Ring cycle, involving a lot of the Rosa's regular singers.

Phyllis Archibald was also included in the cast for 1 March
