Several seasons had passed since the previous revival of Esmeralda. In the meantime, the composer's death had occurred, without producing a follow-up as popular. Barton McGuckin was the only member of the original cast to remain.

Cast details for the Glasgow performance on 23 November are taken from a programme preserved in the Mitchell Library.
