The scheduling ideas of opera companies are strange. Frequently weeks in Aberdeen and Dundee had the same repertoire played in the same order. Here, however, we have Verdi's stirring melodrama occupying the Saturday matinee slot in Aberdeen then Wednesday evening in Dundee. It may have had something to do with availability of singers - Helen Culver and Charles Carter, the Azucena and Manrico, were not singing other roles in the north, and may have had other commitments that allowed them to drop in for only a few days.

The cast is from a programme in Aberdeen Central Library, complemented by reference to reviews in the Dundee Advertiser and Dundee Courier.
