THE D'OYLY CARTE OPERA COMPANY
Anna Maxwell (1887)
Anna Maxwell was gave a week of trial shows in Plymouth as Katisha in The Mikado with Mr. D'Oyly Carte's "D" Company beginning March 28, 1887, before leaving for the European continent. Between April and September 1887 she was the principal contralto on a Carte Continental tour appearing as Katisha, and as the Lady Jane in Patience, in Germany, Austria, and Holland. Upon her return to England in November (perhaps due to ill health), she resumed touring with "D" Company as Katisha and Jane, but only for a week before being replaced by Fanny Edwards. She appears to have left the D'Oyly Carte organization in December 1887 when "D" Company was disbanded.
