Fanny Stockton, former member of Maretzek’s Italian Opera Company, will perform as “Oberon” in Midsummer Night’s Dream at the Olympic Theater soon.
“The single songs which MENDELSSOHN [sic] composed for his opera of ‘Oberon’ are employed in the production at the Olympic, and to Miss FANNY STOCKTON, who made her début as the Fairy King, most of it was entrusted.”
“The beautiful and accomplished cantatrice, Miss Fanny Stockton, had made a highly successful debut on the dramatic stage . . . and will be on the metropolitan boards for a year to come.”
