THE D'OYLY CARTE OPERA COMPANY

Constance Snow as the Lady Saphir in Patience

Constance Snow (1880-82)

Constance Snow was known by her real name, Constance Arnott, when she took her first role, Kate in The Pirates of Penzance, with Mr. D'Oyly Carte's "D" (later "E") Company in December 1880. In 1881 she adopted Snow as her stage name. In December 1881 the Company took up Patience exclusively, as Mr. D'Oyly Carte's No. 2 "Patience" Company, with Miss Snow as the Lady Saphir. She left the role and, it appears, the Carte organization, in October 1882.
