Performance history in South Africa

1836: First performed on 10 September in the African Theatre, Cape Town by Vlyt en Kunst. The rest of the programme consisted of Montoni (Duval/Bruggemans), Nognetzoo (Boniface) and an interlude, described as a "zeer prachtig Transparant" ("a very beautiful transparency") by Mr Poortemans. Music was provided by the musical group De Vriendschap. The evening was as a benefit (and revenge?) for the secretary J.J. de Kock, who had lost a litigation case against Joseph Suasso de Lima, the but of the satire in the play.
