THE D'OYLY CARTE OPERA COMPANY

C. J. O'Byrne (1885)

C. J. O'Byrne sang the part of Cyril in Princess Ida on tour with Mr. D'Oyly Carte's "A" Company from April 1885, when he replaced Charles Conyers, until September of that year, when he was himself succeeded by Charles Hildesley.

Little is known of O'Byrne's career beyond the D'Oyly Carte organization. In 1882, however, he'd sung the part of Charles Martel in a touring production of Offenbach's Genevieve de Brabant featuring Miss Duglas Gordon in the title role.
