Read more about the opera Aïda

Moody-Manners paid their second visit north of the central belt, again with a company of 130, including a chorus of 60 and orchestra of 45 (which must have been a tight fit, at least in Dundee).

Cast details are from a programme in the Aberdeen City Library, which, unusually, also identifies the designers of scenery. The six principals and conductor are confirmed by a review in the Dundee Advertiser.
