Martha 1874Her Majesty's Italian Opera

Read more about the opera Martha

Performing Martha in Italian meant that one of the most familiar of all tenor arias would be started off with the words 'M'appari, tutt'amor...'. Tenors still sing it that way from time to time, though it is hard to imagine the entire opera in the Italian version nowadays.

On this visit, as with the opening Trovatore, star tenor Campanini was unwell, presumably conserving his energies for the new Balfe piece, Il Talismano. A cover went on as Lionel.
