Read more about the opera Trial By Jury

Trial By Jury was revived by Emily Soldene by arrangement with her friend Richard D'Oyly Carte, to act as a make-weight for Geneviève de Brabant. At its original run in London in 1875, it served the same purpose for La Périchole. Clara Vesey, sister of Emily Soldene, had created the role of the Plaintiff in London. Signor Leli, as Durward Lely was still called at this time, was here having his first encounter with a work by Gilbert and Sullivan, at a time when no-one could have known how important his collaboration with them would be in future years.
