The Scotsman reviewer (20 March) wrote

"The piece is essentially melodramatic and spectacular and in this latter aspect the management deserve all praise.  The scenery was a feature of the production of which it was impossible not to take account. So indeed were the ensemble in which chorus, orchestra and the special trumpets in the Nile scene. The audience, which included the Lord Provost, might in view of the character of the performance have been larger."
