The English version by Augustus Moore of Felicien Carré and Edmond Audran‘s La Toledad was first produced at the Theatre Royal, Windsor on Saturday, 11 April 1903. The title role was played by Georgina Delmar and other members of the cast included Emily Soldene as La Maracona, Alec Marsh, Charles Collette, Roland Cunningham, and A.S. Barber and Mary Collette as Lord and Lady Shoeford.

A condensed version of La Toledad was presented on the variety stage at the Palace Theatre, London, for a four week season beginning Monday, 19 October 1903 in which Georgina Delmar played the title role. Other members of the cast were Kitty Marion (who replaced Emily Soldene), Ernest Freshwater, Maisie Ellinger and L. Bullock. The bill for the first week or two also included Loie Fuller ‘in her series of delightfully artistic and mysterious dances,’ Daisy Jerome and others.
