From The Era, 4 June, 1881.

NEW THEATRE ROYAL. Managers, Messrs. George and James Macready Chute. — During the week the stage at this Theatre has been held by one of Mr. D'Oyly Carte's opera companies, who gave on Monday Gilbert and Sullivan's Sorcerer. It need hardly be said of a company of Mr. D'Oyly Carte's selection that it is a competent one, or of a piece produced at Mr. Chute's Theatre that it has been put upon the stage with proper regard for scenic and other arrangements. The Sorcerer has been very efficiently produced and has been received with marked approbation. It cannot be necessary in the case of a company which has been so long on tour to speak of the individual merits of the artistes, but it may not be out of place to notice with satisfaction that Miss Madge Stavart has sufficiently recovered from her recent indisposition to resume the role of Lady Sangazure. Her acting and singing of the minuet with Mr. Arthur Rousby as Sir Marmaduke Pointdextre evoked nightly encore. The opera is preceded by the musical burletta In the Sulks.
