The exotic Egyptian entertainment had become an instant hit in Scotland, and was this time taken to Aberdeen and Dundee for the first of three successive years.

The complete casts are taken from a programme for 4 March in the Mitchell Library and for 12 March in Aberdeen City Library. Variants among the six principals for 19 March are specified in reviews in the Dundee Advertiser and Dundee Courier & Argus.
