This programme is in the Paul Kieve Collection. We are grateful for his permission in 2019 to display it on this website. The programme lists 13 items which can be found by clicking on View Details. Interestingly, the programme states: Owing to the extreme length of the programme, the public are respectfully requested not to indulge in indiscriminate encores, otherwise part of it must necessarily be omitted.
The bill includes Le Cocon which was first presented on 2 May 1887, according to Jenness. It was last shown on 22 October 1887 but Jenness also says that after 1 August 1887, when the Hall reopened, the bill included Verne and Madam Schultz. Since these two acts are not in this programme, it may be that the programme date is between 2 May 1887 and the date in July 1887 when the Hall closed for a holiday. This programme is shown courtesy the Paul Kieve Collection.
This was a gift from Paul Kieve in 2003, following a visit he made to the Davenport Collection. He was reminded about Magritte’s painting as a result of seeing Peter Warlock’s painting also illustrated here, Ref. no. N232.
