A. Laurence Legge as Marco in The Gondoliers

A. Laurence Legge (1909)

Tenor A. Laurence Legge had a brief engagement with the D'Oyly Carte Opera Company at the Savoy. During the Second London Repertory Season, Legge appeared as Annibale when The Gondoliers was revived in January 1909, and filled in briefly for Henry Herbert as Marco in February. When The Yeomen of the Guard was added on March 1, Legge was Leonard Meryll. He left the D'Oyly Carte when the London Season ended on March 27.

Legge later appeared at the Savoy, though not under D'Oyly Carte auspices, as Conrad in Eden & Somerville's The Mountaineers (September-November 1909). His last role in London was Lt. Reginald Hume in the musical comedy The Islander (Apollo, April-August 1910).
