Abstract:
Playbill advertising a performance at the Theatre Royal, Birmingham which principally takes the form of an apology announcing that the lead of the evening's entertainment, Italian opera singer Angelica Catalani (1780-1849), is unable to attend due to ill health. The soprano's appearance had been much publicised by the local press, hence the need to justify her absence by publishing a communication by the attending doctor.
