Cast information is taken from the Glasgow Herald for Friday 13 April. Apparently the performance was poor, nione of the male performers being able to make their words distinct. The reviewer awarded honours to the women, particularly the Marguerite.

The orchestra 'was not at its best.'

The company performed for four weeks in Glasgow then one in Aberdeen. The final lap, of two weeks in Edinburgh, was cancelled due to structural work having to take place in the King’s Theatre.

The schedule was as follows:-

w/c Mon 2 Apr Barber; Tue Butterfly; Wed Carmen; Thu Bohème; Fri Dutchman; Sat m Butterfly; Sat e Cav and Pag

w/c Mon 9 Apr Rigoletto; Tue Traviata; Wed Bohème; Thu Faust; Fri Trovatore; Sat m Bohème; Sat e Carmen.

w/c Mon 16 Apr Dutchman; Tue Bohème; Wed Rigoletto; Thu Butterfly; Fri Barber; Sat m Cav and Pag Sat e Traviata

w/c Mon 23 Apr Mon Cav and Pag; Tue Carmen; Wed Butterfly; Thu Traviata; Fri Faust; Sat m Barber; Sat e Trovatore.

w/c Mon 30 Apr Cav and Pag; Tue Rigoletto; Wed Bohème; Thu Carmen; Fri Dutchman; Sat m Butterfly; Sat e Barber.

Apart from Cav and Pag, nine operas were performed.
