Maritana “will be presented by ‘general desire.’” Full cast list with roles.
“MARITANA, with a popular cast, efficient orchestra and chorus.”
“Miss Howson [sic], the new soprano, made a very favorable impression again at the Grand Opera House last night, singing with unusual facility and taste the charming melodies allotted to the prima donna in ‘Maritana.’ Mr. Bowler, and Mr. Drayton gave most efficient aid, and Mrs. Bowler was an interesting Lazarillo.”
Part of long review of multiple performances; brief. “On Thursday there was a representation of ‘Maritana’ and on Friday one of ‘Faust.’ With the exception, perhaps, of this latter occasion, the business of the week at this theatre has been remarkably fine.”
