Cast details for this single performance are drawn from the Scotsman review dated 27 March.  The review reports that Odette de Foras withdrew from the performance due to indisposition, the role of Donna Anna being taken by Mabel Baker.  A programme for the performance at the King's Theatre, Glasgow survives in the archives of the National Library of Scotland.

"The opera was effectively presented, and the enthusiastic reception seemed to justify another performance before the season closes'"
