THE D'OYLY CARTE OPERA COMPANY
Lizzie Simms (1881)
Lizzie Simms made her first New York Stage appearance in Cinderella (a pictorial and melodious arrangement of the fairy tale) as a "sensational transformation danseuse" (Booth's Theatre, October-November 1880).
Miss Simms later appeared in New York and Boston with E. E. Rice & R. D'Oyly Carte's First and Second Billee Taylor Companies between April and June 1881. She danced the "Sailor's Hornpipe" in the Stephens & Solomon opera. It was her only engagement with the D'Oyly Carte organization.
Her subsequent appearances in New York in 1884 and 1885 were also as a danseuse.
