Cast details are taken from the Scottish Referee (24 March).

The reviewer said this opera "which is not so well known as some works, was listened to by a large and enthusiastic house." There is more line speaking thans is generally associated with opera, and the story was followed with marked interest.

"In the part of Myles, Mr E. C. Hedmondt was a conspicuous success, his brogue being exceptionally good, and his acting being marked with frequent rounds of applause."

"The mounting was on a lavish scale. Mr Eugene Goossens conducted the orchestra, which did all that was required."
