Read more about the opera Marriage of Figaro

The cast for the performance with which Carl Rosa opened the week's visit to Edinburgh beginning April 23, 1888 is given in the programme which survives in the file of Lyceum programmes in the Edinburgh Room in Edinburgh City library.  Sadly it seems unlikely any later programmes survive - there is one giving the casts for Friday and Saturday of the visit  in April 1887.

Cast as per programme for April 23 & 28. Lily Crabtree was the cover for Georgina Burns.
