THE D'OYLY CARTE OPERA COMPANY

Percy Burbank (1880-91)

Percy Burbank appears to have been a member of D'Oyly Carte's London chorus at the Opera Comique and Savoy at least from 1881 to 1891. His only named parts were the tiny roles of Sir Conrad Murgatroyd in the first production of Ruddygore at the Savoy in 1887 and Annibale in the later stages of the first run of The Gondoliers (July 1890 to June 1891). He is reported to have been in the chorus of one of D'Oyly Carte's touring companies in 1880.
