Read more about the opera Maritana

The Aberdeen P&J (16 April) reviewed the closing night of Carl Rosa Opera's visit. 'Maritana was heartily enjoyed and demands for encores were numerous....the singing was of a high level....the well-known songs from Wallace's opera retain their hold upon the public's affection.'

Cast details are taken from the Aberdeen Presss and Journal (16 April).
