Performance history in South Africa
1848: Scenes from the play (called Arlekyn Savoyard here) may have been done in Cape Town by Messrs L. Victor and C. Crosset, members of the Dalle Case Company, on 14 February. They give the title of their source as De Twee Savoyanen (Anon.), but it is very likely to have been this work by their Belgian compatriot.
