THE D'OYLY CARTE OPERA COMPANY

Albert Gater (1894, 1896-1901)

[Born c.1870]

Albert Gater was a tenor chorister who appeared on D'Oyly Carte's American Utopia Limited tour of New York and Boston between March and June 1894. He was later with the D'Oyly Carte Opera Company "B" in 1896, and with Carte's main London company at the Savoy from 1897 to 1901. His only named parts were Francesco in The Gondoliers (with Company "B," January-April 1896, and at the Savoy, August 1898), the Defendant (Savoy, December 1898) and the Associate (Savoy, June-November 1899) in Trial by Jury, Ralph Rackstraw in H.M.S. Pinafore (Savoy, August 1899), and Henry in the curtain-raiser The Outpost (Savoy, August 1900).

Gater's only subsequent appearances in London programs came much later:in the "revusical comedy" After the Ball (Gaiety, 1914) and the musical comedy Yes, Uncle (Prince of Wales's, Princes, and Shaftesbury Theatres, 1917-18).
