A brief reviiew can be found in the Glasgow Herald (3 April).

"On Saturday the large audience attracted to the Grand Theatre were treated to excellent performances.  Mr Edward Davies who was Beppo...sang all through in his best style, and was much applauded.  Miss Una Brookshaw took a rather exaggerated view of the gestures and actions necessary to reflect the position of Nedda."

"Herr Julius Walther...revealed fine dramatic gifts as Canio, and also took the fullest advantage of the dramatic opportunities of the role.   One of the features of the performance was the singing of the prologue by Herr Charles Victor.   The band, under Mr Eugene Goossens, made the most of the music "
