Trevor Anthony (1954-55)

Trevor Anthony began his career in grand opera, his first London role being that of Hunding in The Valkyrie at Covent Garden in 1948. He was clearly between engagements when he sang in the D’Oyly Carte chorus from November 1954 to January 1955. In October 1954 he had been singing in The Beggar’s Opera and The Rape of Lucretia at Sadler’s Wells. By September 1955 he was in Benjamin Britten’s Let’s Make an Opera! at the Scala and later the Court. In 1956 he sang in the chorus of the musical comedy Plain and Fancy. He returned to Gilbert & Sullivan briefly in 1962 when he sang the part of Major Murgatroyd in the EMI recording of Patience conducted by Sir Malcolm Sargent.
