Book Description

This is a very rare surviving group of two different programmes and the Script book for the production Jacques Offenbach’s Fairy Tale Opera stage adaptation of the Jules Verne Science Fiction interplanetary novel “From the Earth to the Moon” titled “Le Voyage Dans La Lune” for its appearance in Leicester Square at London’s Royal Alhambra Theatre in 1876, the lot consists of two different four page programmes, one of which is illustrated, the other item is the 40 page script book of the Stage Play, only one item is dated and that is the illustrated programme which carries the date of 20th November 1876, online records show the play was originally preformed at the Alhambra Theatre on 15th April 1876, it is possible that the other programme in this lot is from the first production, and the second one when the production made a return to London later in the year, Some soiling to the covers of the script and some creases to the programmes else all are in good general condition, a nice set of these very scarce and fragile survivals
