THE D'OYLY CARTE OPERA COMPANY

Louise Whittock as Lady Psyche in Princess Ida

Louise Whittock (1925-27)

Louise Whittock made her first appearance on the London Stage as Sally Besom in the fantastic ballad-opera Kate (Kingsway, February-March 1924).

She joined the D'Oyly Carte Repertory Opera Company in October 1925, and during the balance of the 1925-26 season assumed the roles of Kate in The Yeomen of the Guard and Fiametta in The Gondoliers. In August 1926 she added the Plaintiff in Trial by Jury, Celia in Iolanthe, and Lady Psyche in Princess Ida to her repertoire, but shared Kate in Yeomen with Blossom Gelsthorpe for the 1926-27 season.

Miss Whittock left the D'Oyly Carte organization at the end of the season, in June 1927.
