It should be noted that there were 10 other operas in the repertoire and a large contingent of talented singers employed on each of these tours.  While there limited information on the exact dates and counts of the other operas, it seems that Carmen with 34 performances that year alone was one of the most popular headliners and sure to be performed at each stop of the main company. By the time the troupe had reached San Francisco, Miss Mayer’s reputation was proceeding her as evidenced by several stellar reviews, including the excerpt from one to the right.
