Cadi 1881Carl Rosa Opera Company

Read more about the opera Cadi

Following the success of Mignon, Carl Rosa continued to explore a vein of successful French works, though, with the obvious exceptions of Faust and Carmen, none of them had anything like its staying power. Certainly Le Caïd, a charming comedy more reminiscent of Auber, disappeared from the touring repertoire quite quickly, even though it seems to have been enjoyed by the audiences that did see it..
