THE D'OYLY CARTE OPERA COMPANY

Adelaide Grecey (1880-1908)

[Born St. Pancras 21 Aug 1863, died 20 Jun 1963]

Adelaide Grecey joined the D'Oyly Carte organization as a chorister in January 1880 with Mr. D'Oyly Carte's "Second 'Pinafore'" Company. She was with Carte's "B" Company in 1881 and reportedly signed her last contract with Mrs. (Helen) D'Oyly Carte in 1908, though it unclear how much service she had with the D'Oyly Cartes in intervening years.

She died in June 1963 just two months shy of her hundredth birthday.
