Production transferred to Dublin from London for two weeks, then company moved on to Cork for a week before catching the steamer City of Chester for New York. First impressions were that the opera had been produced at the Gaiety Theatre, Dublin, but primary source material showed that it was in fact the Theatre Royal. Campanini was listed to play Don José but was unable to perform due to illness. Italian translation by Lauzières.
