Performance history in South Africa
1866: A "new and interesting ballet" called The Dancing Scotchman, or Love in all Corners was performed on the 20th of August by the Le Roy and Duret theatre company in the Theatre Royal in Harrington Street, Cape Town, with Mrs Brazier in the lead and was offered as the afterpiece to a performance of Retribution (Taylor). The ballet was most probably a work created or adapted by members of the British company, based on the earlier work by Flexmore and Auriol, discussed above.
