THE D'OYLY CARTE OPERA COMPANY

Daisy Baldry

Daisy Baldry (1887-88)

Daisy Baldry was a chorus member with D’Oyly Carte’s first Continental touring company performing in H.M.S. Pinafore, Patience, and The Mikado in Germany, Austria, and Holland from April 1887 to February 1888.  It appears to have been her only stint with the Carte organization.

After leaving the D'Oyly Carte she appeared in London as Adolphe of Valadolid in W. S. Gilbert's adaptation of Offenbach's The Brigands (Avenue Theatre, September 1889).  Her name also appears on two London playbills in the 1890s—as Lt. Wright in the pantomime Beauty and the Beast (Prince of Wales’s, December 1890 to April 1891), and as Vesta in Binks, the Downy Photographer (Strand, October to November 1893).  Prior to the latter engagement, Miss Baldry toured with William Greet’s Company as Flo in George Dance’s “musical go-as-you-please” The Lady Slavey.
