Harry Pepper

Harry Pepper (1886)

Tenor Harry Pepper's only engagement under D'Oyly Carte auspices was with Carte's Fourth American Mikado Company, under the management of John Stetson. He replaced Charles Lang as Nanki-Poo in January or February 1886.

Pepper appeared frequently in New York during the late 1880s and early 1890s, primarily on the concert stage. He had earlier appeared on tour as the Duke of Dunstable in Patience with the Boston Museum Company (January 1882), and in Philadelphia as Nanki-Poo in an unauthorized production of The Mikado (September-October 1885) starring Frankie Kemble.
