Read more about the opera Nordisa

One of a number of operas commissioned by Carl Rosa, Nordisa opened in Liverpool and had an extensive tour through 1887. It seems to have had a popular success in Glasgow, with extra performances added. In Edinburgh, Georgina Burns and Aynsley Cook were both indisposed, but the covers seem to have acquitted themselves well.
