Casts are as reviewed in the Glasgow Herald (on 28 Apr) or as advertised. For that performance, the usual order was reversed, with Pag opening the evening, followed by Pag.

In the autumn, the programme for 13 November was also eccentric, with Pagliacci preceded by the first two acts of The Bo Girl. A programme survives in the Mitchell Library.  A programme dated 18 November survives in Edinburgh Central Library.
