Campanini was listed to play Don José but was unable to perform due to illness. The Cork Constitution of 19 September 1878 states that Runcio ‘seemed rather overtaxed’ in the role. The number of performances refers to the period 1876-1906; first performance for the benefit of Lagarde. Italian translation by Lauzières.
