Given its great popularity, it seems strange that so few performances of Bohème were given on this tour. But given the practice that few pieces could be given twice in a venue that was unavoidable - indeed there was no performance at all during the Aberdeen week. Perhaps even stranger was the fact that all three performances were matinees - midweek in Glasgow, and Saturday in Aberdeen and Dundee.The linchpin of these afternoons was the young conductor, John Barbirolli, already an expert Puccinian.

Cast is as given in the Dundee Evening Telegraph & Post and Dundee Courier & Advertiser.
