, at the Comedy Theatre in London, then under the management of Violet Melnotte, whom Wyatt married in London the following year. He appeared in the 1888 burlesque of "Atalanta" at the Strand Theatre with Willie Warde and Tom Squire.
Thomas continued to write plays, but he never matched the success of "Charley's Aunt". His later titles included "Marriage", 1892; "The Queen of Brilliants", adapted from the German with music by Edward
, 1894; "The Swordsman's Daughter" (an adaptation of a French play, with Clement Scott), 1895; "22a Curzon Street", 1898; "Women Are So Serious", 1901; "Fourchette & Co.", 1904; and "A Judge’s Memory", 1906. He was also well known as an author and singer of "coon songs".
The Queen of Brilliants is a comic opera in three acts with music by Edward
and a libretto by Brandon Thomas. It was adapted from Jakobowski's German-language operetta "Die Brillantett-Königin", with a libretto by Theodore Tawbe and Isidor Fuchs, which premiered in March 1894 in Vienna. A vehicle for Lillian Russell, the plot concerns Betta, who runs away from a nunnery to join a variety troupe known as "The Brilliants" and is nicknamed their queen. She proves the worth of her lover, Florian, and turns out to be a real countess. A feature of the spectacularly-staged production was several "corps de ballet".
The Atlanta Chiefs name and logo (altered slightly) were revived in 1979 when the Colorado Caribous franchise moved to Atlanta, with Cecil and Ted Turner as owners. The team again played at Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium for three seasons and also at Omni Coliseum for two NASL Indoor seasons until folding after the 1981 season. Players for the Atlanta Chiefs were Brian Kidd, Adrian Brooks, Keith Furphy, Victor Nogueira, Paul Child, Mark MacKain, Mark
, Lou Cioffi, Tony Whelan, Carl Strong, Webster Lichaba, Graham Tutt, Jomo Sono, Bruce Savage, Louis and George Nanchoff.
She married tenor John Haley Augustin Chatterton (known professionally as Signor Giovanni Perugini) in 1894, but they soon separated, and in 1898, they divorced. In the spring of 1894, she returned to London to play Betta in "The Queen of Brilliants" by Edward
and then played the same role in the New York production at Abbey's Theatre. She remained at Abbey's, playing several roles, but when that theatre shut down in 1896, she played in other Broadway houses in more operettas by Offenbach (such as "The Princess of Trebizonde" and many others), Victor Herbert and others, such as the "Erminie" (at the Casino Theatre) in 1899.
In 1888 and 1889, Billington toured as Deadeye, Sergeant of Police, Colonel Calverley, Pooh-Bah, Sergeant Meryll and later Wilfred Shadbolt in "The Yeomen of the Guard". He then briefly left the D'Oyly Carte company to play Bragadoccio in Edward
and Harry Paulton's comic opera "Paola" in Edinburgh, in a cast also including Leonora Braham. In 1890, to strengthen the New York cast of "The Gondoliers", Carte sent several chosen players to America, including Billington as Don Alhambra. Billington next returned to Britain, touring in "The Gondoliers" and then "The Mikado" as Pooh-Bah and "Yeomen" as Shadbolt.
On July 14, 1894, Ritchie and the German tenor Conrad Behrens sang with the Sousa Band in a summer concert performed at Manhattan Beach, Brooklyn. At Abbey's Theatre, that September, Ritchie opened as Princess Mirane in "The Devil’s Deputy", an operetta adapted from the French by J. Cheever Goodwin and composer Edward
. The following week she was replaced by the more experienced Amanda Fabris, who manager Al Canby and lead actor Francis Wilson felt would give the stronger performance. Ritchie was next engaged at the American Theatre in January 1895 as Madge Brainerd in the Harrison Grey Fiske political drama "The District Attorney", and that summer at the Garrick Theatre, New York, she played Little Willie in the burlesque Trilby by Joseph W. Hebert and Charles Puener.
At the end of 1896, Blackmore left the D'Oyly Carte Opera Company. He toured for more than a year in a new musical comedy, "The Ballet Girl", by James T. Tanner and Adrian Ross, playing the role of Reuben Van Eyt. He then appeared in London in 1898 and 1899 as Piccolo in Edward
and Ross's musical comedy "Milord Sir Smith" at the Comedy Theatre. After this, he played Vincent in a tour of "Ma Mie Rosette", a "romantic comedy-opera" with music by Paul Lacome and Ivan Caryll. During this period, Blackmore sang at the Steinway Hall in London on 2 November 1898 during the first season of the Elderhorst Chamber Concerts.
Tempest debuted in 1885 as Fiametta in Franz Suppé's operetta "Boccaccio" at the Comedy Theatre in London, where she also took the title role in "Erminie" by Edward
. She starred steadily in London for the next two years in light operas by Hervé and André Messager, among others. She became internationally famous for her performance in the title role in "Dorothy" by Alfred Cellier and B. C. Stephenson (1887), which ran for a record-setting 931 performances (becoming a hit after Tempest took over the title role from Marion Hood). Her marriage was damaged by rumours of an affair with her producer, but the same rumours only enhanced her appeal to her audiences. Richard D'Oyly Carte considered engaging her for his opera company but W. S. Gilbert (after seeing her in "Dorothy") reported that she "screeched", and the proposal was dropped.
Stephenson's later work in musical theatre was less successful. For the Carl Rosa Opera Company he rewrote the libretto for "The Golden Web", an opera bouffe by the composer Arthur Goring Thomas, which was first heard in 1893. In spite of some positive critical attention, interest in the piece was short-lived. The same year, two short operettas with music by Edward
, "The Improvisatore" and "A Venetian Singer", made little impact. "The Ranch", a musical farce with music by Edward Solomon, failed to find a theatre to stage it. A libretto for Charles Villiers Stanford, "Christopher Patch, The Barber of Bath", was set by Stanford but has never been performed. A libretto for Sir Alexander Mackenzie remained, as McKenzie put it in 1898, "still in my desk".
Jansen played the title role in a four-month run at the Boston Museum of the comic opera "Fantine", by Firmin Bernicat and André Messager that was adapted by B. E. Woolf and R. M. Field (manager of the Boston Museum), with additional music supplied by Woolf. She next sang the role of Phyllis in "Iolanthe". In May 1885, with the McCaull Comic Opera Company, Jansen played Rosetta in Sydney Rosenfeld's adaptation of the Millöcker comic opera "Der schwarze Husar" ("The Black Hussars"). A year later at the Casino Theatre, she played Javotte in "Erminie", the hit comic opera composed by Edward
. When she joined the cast of "Erminie", Aronson added a song for her, "Sunday after Three, My Sweetheart Comes to Me", that he adapted from an old German tune. In May 1888, again at the Casino, Jansen created for the American stage the title role in "Nadjy", adapted by Alfred Murray from the Francis Chassaigne operetta, "Les noces improvises". Jansen performed the role after only five days rehearsal following Sadie Martinot's last minute departure over a creative dispute. "Nadjy" went on to have a run of 256 performances.
Jakobowski's most successful work by far, "Erminie", opened in 1885 in London. It was revived extensively and toured internationally, playing with extraordinary success on Broadway from 1886. None of his other works had more than a short run or two, although many of them toured profitably. For two Victorian burlesques, "The Three Beggars" (1883) and "Little Carmen" (1884),
used the pen name Edward Belville. His principal shows were "Dick" (1884, based on the story of Dick Whittington; libretto: Alfred Murray), "The Lady of the Locket" (1885), "Erminie", "The Palace of Pearl" (1886), "Mynheer Jan" (1887; libretto: Paulton), "Paola" (1889; libretto: Paulton), "La Rosiére" (1893, in one act), "The Queen of Brilliants" (1894; libretto: Brandon Thomas, starring Lillian Russell), "The Devil's Deputy" (1894; libretto: J. Cheever Goodwin), "Milord Sir Smith" (1898, originally titled "Cumpano"; libretto O'Day and Adrian Ross), "Tarantella" (1899; libretto: Alfred Murray) and "Winsome Winnie" (1903). He was one of eight composers who contributed to "Pat" in 1892. Two short operettas in 1893 with libretti by B. C. Stephenson, "The Improvisatore" and "A Venetian Singer", made little impact.
Goodwin's works included a much-revived musical adaptation, or musical burlesque, of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's "Evangeline" called "Evangeline; or, The Belle of Acadia" (1874), composed by Rice; "The Corsair" (1887), with music by Rice; "Little Pig Went to Market" (1890), with music by Gustave Kerker; "The Merry Monarch", an English-language adaptation of "L'étoile", with music by Morse (1890); a popular and well-revived piece, "Wang" (1891), with music by Morse, starring De Wolf Hopper; "Panjandrum" (1893), with music by Morse, written for and produced by Hopper's company; "The Devil's Deputy" (1894), music by Edward
; "A Daughter of the Revolution" (1895), with music by Ludwig Engländer; "Lost, Strayed or Stolen" (1896), with music by Morse; "
Round New York in 80 Minutes" (1899–1900), with music by Rice and John J. Braham; "The Cadet Girl" (1900), with music by Ludwig Engländer; "The Monks of Malabar" (1900), composed by Engländer; "The Rogers Brothers in Central Park" (1900–01), with music by Maurice Levi; "The Sleeping Beauty and the Beast" (1901–02), with music by Frederick Solomon; and "Mr. Bluebeard" (1903), with music by Solomon.
