Notes

Calling was repeatedly reported as having one of the most ingenious sets yet devised for company’s productions; sadly no photographs of the set exist in archive nor a description of what made the set so special. However, it is known it featured more than 700 lanterns and £140,000 worth of electrical equipment to create the set.
