Playbill for the Covent Garden Theatre, listing productions staged there in early February 1842 (probably from Feb. 4 to Feb. 11). The top half of the program advertises a production under the heading "Magic Dun Cow," which is presumably Richard Hughes' adaptation of Guy, Earl of Warwick. Also on the playbill are productions of Dion Boucicault's Irish heiress; Saverio Mercadante's Elena Uberti; and Vincenzo Bellini's Norma. The latter two productions starred Adelaide Kemble.
