The French Romantic poet and dramatist Alfred de Musset adapted "Wandering Willie's Tale" into a French stage play called La Quittance du Diable [The Devil's Receipt] in 1830, but the play was not produced owing to revolutionary disturbances that year in Paris. A production was mounted in Avignon, France, in 1998.

There have been several stage and operatic adaptations of Redgauntlet, the novel containing "Wandering Willie's Tale," including English stage productions in 1824, 1825, and 1872, the last named being in Dundee, Scotland (adaptation by A. D. McNeill). A French musical called Le Revenant, based on the novel, was put on in 1834 at the Paris Opera-Comique. A French opera called Redgauntlet was produced in 1843 (words and music by Paul Foucher and Jules Alboise de Pujol).
