Ernest Guiraud no longer has any identity as a composer of original works. Instead he is remembered for a useful job he performed in increasing the suitability for performance of two works of better composers. A side-effect of this has been that his original work has not been performed.

In the absence (so far) of any information on the cast of the sole Edinburgh outing, we give here some details gleaned of earlier performances, including the first UK showing, in Dublin, back in January.
