Albert Bond (1921-23)

[Born 1893]

Albert Bond joined the D'Oyly Carte "New" Opera Company in June 1921 as the second principal tenor. He sang the Defendant in Trial by Jury, Lord Tolloller in Iolanthe, and Leonard Meryll in The Yeomen of the Guard, and in his second season (1922-23), when Iolanthe was dropped from the "New" Company repertoire, also shared the role of Nanki-Poo in The Mikado with Charles Goulding. He left the D'Oyly Carte in June 1923 at the end of the season.

Bond had appeared in London at the Lyceum in grand opera in 1919, and had had brief London opera engagements in 1916 and 1918, as well.
