Translation by unknown

Les Huguenots received four performances this season.

[At the first performance the program listed Egener as the Lady of Honor and omitted the role of the Page. It is possible that Egener in fact sang the Page, as she did at all subsequent performances this season, and that the Lady of Honor was performed by Mattfeld, her assignment at all later performances. Company records indicate that Mattfeld appeared in the season premiere, but her role was not specified.]
