THE D'OYLY CARTE OPERA COMPANY

Maude Richardson

Maude Richardson (1892-94)

[Born 1 Sep 1870]

Maude Richardson, real name Edith Maud Richardson, traveled to Italy as a teenager where she received her vocal training. She was a chorister and small part player with D'Oyly Carte Opera Company "D" in the 1890s. When the Company toured The Vicar of Bray and Haddon Hall from December 1892 to December 1893 she appeared in the small role of Deborah in Haddon Hall. From December 1893 to December 1894 Company "D" presented Utopia Limited with Miss Richardson in the equally small part of Melene. These were her only named parts though she may have remained with the Carte organization as a chorister for a few years thereafter.
