Monsieur Levassor with his ‘Scènes et Chansons Comiques’ at the Egyptian Hall, 1863

M. Levassor performed his ‘Scenes and Comic Songs’ at the Dudley Gallery, Egyptian Hall with the help of Madame Teisseire. A programme dated 20 June is illustrated. The press cuttings confirm that the performances ran in May and June 1863. It is not clear whether they started earlier. This is one of the items contained in a wooden box of 19th century ephemera, mainly relating to the Egyptian Hall.
