Notes

3 performances: 18, 20 & 29 January 1882. The Nouvelliste de Lyon gives La Fille du Régiment in its listing for 29 January 1882 and not Carmen. It also mentions a M. Marris (saying he has no voice left) but without mentioning which role he sings (Remendado? See Bordeaux, 1878). Galli-Marié also sang in Mignon and Les Dragons de Villars while in Lyon.
