THE D'OYLY CARTE OPERA COMPANY

Florence Terriss (1883-84)

Florence Terriss appeared as Fleta in Iolanthe on tour with Mr. D'Oyly Carte's "E" ("Iolanthe" No. 2) Company beginning in October 1883. In July 1884, "E" Company added Patience to its repertoire with Miss Terriss as the Lady Saphir. She appears to have left the Company in November 1884, when she was succeeded in both parts by Kate Kavanagh.

Miss Terriss was married to F. Landor Scates, understudy to the comic baritone parts with "E" Company.
