THE D'OYLY CARTE OPERA COMPANY

Arthur Marcel (1890)

Arthur Marcel was engaged by D'Oyly Carte to appear on January 7, 1890, as Luiz in the first American production of The Gondoliers at the Park Theatre, New York. The production was a popular, critical, and financial failure. It closed in February, and when it was remounted at Palmer's Theatre later that month Marcel was no longer in the cast.
