Read more about the opera Martha

This charming comedy remained very popular with British audiences well into the 20th century. In spite of its German composer and French source material, it seems to have been regarded very much as an English opera on a par with Maritana and The Bohemian Girl, and was performed by the same companies. On the basis of this final visit as part of the first Sadler’s Wells tour it seems to have outlasted those contemporary English works.

Scottish Opera's group of Opera For All did tour it extensively with piano accompaniment in 1969. It has not, however, been mounted by one of the major British companies since, being left to groups like Phoenix Opera and Haddo House to preserve a record of performances.

Cast for Dundee and Aberdeen confirmed by programmes.
