THE D'OYLY CARTE OPERA COMPANY

(Miss) M. Fitzpatrick (1887)

During the first weeks of Mr. D'Oyly Carte's "C" Company's first provincial production of Ruddigore in March 1887, Miss M. Fitzpatrick was reported by The Era to have appeared as Rose Maybud. However, Margaret Cockburn was the first Rose, and played the part with Carte's "C" Company though November. Miss Fitzpatrick may have been Margaret Cockburn by another name.
