Read more about the opera Rigoletto

Cavaliere Castellano's Grand Italian Opera Company was one of a succession of companies of Italian origin that made periodic tours of the UK. All operas were performed in Italian, including Carmen, Faust and even Maritana. Most of the singers were Italian, though there were exceptions. On this tour, for instance, a young English soprano, Miriam Licette, made a great impact as Micaëla in Carmen and was then given the part of Marguerite in Faust - a role she eventually recorded (in English) with Sir Thomas Beecham.

The cast is from a programme in Aberdeen City Library and reviews in the Dundee Advertiser and Courier & Argus.
