"A" ('Princess Ida' No. 2) Company in Portsmouth

The Era (London, England), Saturday, August 16, 1884; Issue 2395.

THE NEW THEATRE ROYAL. – Lessee and Manager, Mr. J. W. Boughton. – From the success attending last week's engagement of Mr. D'Oyly Carte's Princess Ida company their services have been secured for another week, and in spite of the excessive heat and other out-door attractions we have to record very fair business.

On Monday Miss Florence Dysart was the Princess Ida in the absence of Miss Josephine Findlay, who so ably sustained the part last week. Miss Dysart is also to be complimented for the talent she displays.

Mr. Chas. Goold is a capital King Hildebrand. Mr. Milroy Cooper's Cyril is well conceived; as is also King Gama by Mr. David James, jun.

The choruses and surroundings are of the first order. We must not omit to mention the beautiful scenery by those well-known artists, Messrs Hawes Craven and Emden.
