THE D'OYLY CARTE OPERA COMPANY

Fred W. Zaulig (m.d., 1886)

Frederick W. Zaulig's only D'Oyly Carte experience came in (and possibly around) March 1886, when he was engaged by John Stetson as musical director for Carte's Third American Mikado Company on a New England tour.Zaulig was the second of three conductors for that Company: he was preceded by Charles Puerner and succeeded by John Mulally.

Zaulig's career involving the musical stage extended at least from February 1868 (when he conducted a burlesque adaptation of Offenbach's Grand Duchess of Gerolstein:(Leon's Own) Grand Dutch "S", in New York at Kelly & Leon's Minstrels) until October 1889 (when he directed a "spectacular burlesque pantomime extravaganza" called Spider and Fly at New York's Windsor Theatre).
