"The Carl Rosa Opera Company brought their very successful season at the Lyceum Theatre in Edinburgh to a close on Saturday evening by an admirable performance of Il trovatore in which Mr Hughes Macklin and Miss Beatrice Miranda carried off the chief honours.  Both were recalled again and again by a most enthusiastic audience."
