THE D'OYLY CARTE OPERA COMPANY

Mina Rowley (1882-84)

Georgina Mina Rowley began her D'Oyly Carte career at New York's Standard Theatre in three productions:as Lazarillo (September-October 1882) in Bucalossi's Les Manteaux Noirs, Sara in Planquette's Rip Van Winkle (October-November 1882), and Celia in Gilbert & Sullivan's Iolanthe (November 1882-February 1883).

She later appeared briefly in London at the Savoy, again as Celia, for the last months of Iolanthe there (October 1883-January 1884), before going back on tour:this time in the British provinces with Mr. D'Oyly Carte's "C" ("Patience" No. 1) Company as the Lady Ella in Patience and Rose Frumpington in the "curtain-raiser" A Private Wire (March-July 1884).
