Unknown - Robin Hood (Covent Garden)

By Henrik Thiil Nielsen, 2014-10-10. Revised by Henrik Thiil Nielsen, 2017-05-06.

According to the "Theatrical Register" column in the Gentleman's Magazine, one or more pieces entitled Robin Hood was/were performed quite frequently at Covent Garden during the 1780 and '90s. The Register lists just the titles and dates of performance. No doubt further data such as full titles and authors will be found in other sources, but in the meantime the dates of performance are collected on this page. Two other titles possibly related to the Robin Hood tradition also figure quite frequently: Marian (at Covent Garden) and Richard Coeur de Lion (at Drury Lane). The dates for these pieces are listed on the "Discussion" page.
