On this tour each of the four Saturday evenings saw a performance of La Bohème. Elizabeth Fretwell was suffering from flu during the Dundee week, and also pulled out of the Traviata performance.

The repertoire played in each of the four cities consisted of the same four operas - three performances of the new Merry Widow production, two of Figaro and one each of Bohème and Traviata.
