Faust 1910Moody-Manners Opera Company

Read more about the opera Faust

As always, Saturday evening was devoted to a popular favourite that everybody knew - The Bo Girl, Maritana, Trovatore, or, in Aberdeen and Dundee this time round, Faust. The critics could be relied on not to attend these events - there was little promotional value to the theatre in reviewing a company on Monday that had departed to pastures new the day before. And the complimentary seats given to critics were, in this instance, better employed being occupied by paying punters.

The cast is from a programme in Aberdeen City Library, supplemented by newspaper previews for Dundee.
