The new English version by Oscar Weil was introduced by the Carl Rosa company at Bristol on 12 October 1890.

This initial cast stayed together for several seasons, with Zélie de Lussan forming an effective comic partnership with Aynsley Cook that continued until his death in 1894. The translation seems to diverge significantly from the original, though perhaps no more than the earlier adaptation by Edward Fitzball.

Cast as advertised for Glasgow matinee.
