THE D'OYLY CARTE OPERA COMPANY

Bertha Hockheimer (1894-98, 1900-01)

Bertha Hockheimer toured with D'Oyly Carte Opera Company "E" in a good portion of the 1890s, appearing briefly in the named parts of Lady Sophy in Utopia Limited (February 1894) and Olga in The Grand Duke (July 1896), and was with Company "E" for portions of 1897 and 1898 as well. From April to December 1900 she was with D'Oyly Carte Opera Company "D" as "Song of Nightingale" in The Rose of Persia. In January 1901 she appeared with D'Oyly Carte Opera Company "E" once more, filling in that month as "Whisper-of-the West Wind" in the same opera.

She had earlier toured Great Britain as Marguerite in Delia, a "romantic military comic opera" by Frank Desprez and Procida Bucalossi, beginning in March 1889.
