Faust 1893Carl Rosa Opera Company

Read more about the opera Faust

Even such a standard offering as Faust was sometimes not given many performances in a season. However there were always new audience members who were unfamiliar with the popular classics of the repertoire. The company also needed to try new singers in the parts, such as Alice Esty, advertised in the spring - she would remain with the company for several years. Lempriere Pringle was also contracted for several seasons. However, Frances Neville and Mary Linck, who joined in the autumn, would not be such long term recruits.
