A musical absurdity, produced by D'Oyly Carte and toured during 1880. Believed to have been written by Ralph Horner and also to have been performed in Huddersfield, Bolton and Hanley in October and November 1879. No further details.
Produced at the Savoy Theatre from 2nd July to 3rd November as a companion piece to The Pirates of Penzance, and from 8th or 10th November to 7th December 1900 as a companion piece to Patience, a total of 131 performances
Words: A.O'D. Bartholeyns. Music: Hamilton Clarke.
The Outpost is an adaptation by Bartholeyns of Der Vierjhrige Posten by Theodor Krner. No copy of printed libretto or vocal score in British Library, but there is a copy of a fantasia for flute and piano, based on airs from the piece, suggesting that the vocal score may have been published. The piece is not listed by Allardyce Nicoll, and there appears to be no copy in the Lord Chamberlain's collection.
Campion only played from 30th July to 11th August while Pinder was substituting as the Pirate King. Nell Richardson probably only played while Evans was "off" from 27th August to 8th September.
Performed on tour from late 1901 (Rollins, pers. comm.) through 1902 as a companion piece to The Pirates of Penzance, Patience and Iolanthe, with cast: Fred G. Edgar, W.G. Lennox, E.A. White, R.A. Swinhoe, Fred Drawater, Bernard Fisher, Edward L. Bishop and at various times Frank Robey, Norah Maguire, Florence Beech and Bessel Adams.
