THE D'OYLY CARTE OPERA COMPANY
|The St. Felix Sisters|
Charlotte St. Felix (1881)
Dancers Charlotte, Clementine, and Henrietta St. Felix appeared at New York's Standard Theatre with E. E. Rice & R. D'Oyly Carte's First Billee Taylor Company in May 1881. Known as "The St. Felix Sisters," they danced the "Sailor's Hornpipe" in the Stephens & Solomon opera. It was their only engagement with the D'Oyly Carte organization.
The sisters were first seen on the New York Stage a decade earlier:billed as the St. Felix Parisienne Infant Ballet Troupe ("children from 5 to 10 years of age dancing with the proficiency of adults"). They were still performing in the 1890s.
