From The Era (London, England), Saturday, October 8, 1881; Issue 2246.

THEATRE ROYAL. – Lessee and Manager, Mr. W. A. Waddington. – The Pirates of Penzance company, which appeared on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday last in Gilbert and Sullivan's popular work, compares favourably with that which was here before.

Certainly the chorus is very much weaker in point of numbers, which is to be regretted, but the principals are in almost every case fully qualified for their respective parts. The cast is as follows: ‑ Major-General Stanley, Mr. Walter Greyling; Pirate King, Mr. F. Federici; Samuel, Mr. Truro; Frederick, Mr. H. Bolini; Sergeant of Police, Mr. L. Roche; Mabel, Miss Henschel; Edith, Miss Kate Cohen; Kate, Miss Constance Snow; Isabel, Miss Agnes Taylor; and Ruth, Miss Fanny Harrison.

The scenery was expressly painted for the occasion by Messrs W. T. Hemsley and G. F. Venimore, and speaks well for their artistic skill.
