"A" ('Princess Ida' No. 2) Company in Torquay and Bourneouth

The Era (London, England), Saturday, July 26, 1884; Issue 2392.

THEATRE AND OPERA HOUSE. – Manager, Mr. Charles Daly. – Mr. D'Oyly Carte's Princess Ida opera company commenced a week's engagement at this theatre on Monday night. The audiences have been very large, and the opera has been most favourably received.

Unfortunately Miss Florence Dysart (Princess Ida) suffered from a cold, and her voice was not heard to advantage.

THEATRE ROYAL. — Manager, Mr. Harry Nash. — On Monday evening Mr. D'Oyly Carte's Princess Ida company commenced an engagement here, and we may say at once that for singing, acting, scenery, and dresses, nothing so thoroughly complete has ever been seen at our elegant little theatre. The company all round is a most excellent organisation, and all work well together, the chorus being specially good.

We missed Miss Dysart (indisposed) as the Princess, but Miss Wynter made a very capable and interesting substitute.

Large audiences have attended each performance.
