28 Little Maids from School are We!

    Newer Older

    Pupils of Our Lady of Lourdes, Holy Faith school at Rosbercon, New Ross, Co. Wexford. We have no further details, but would imagine that this cast ensemble were taking a break from a performance of The Mikado, unless anyone can suggest another play or musical with an overwhelmingly Japanese theme.

    Date: Circa 1930?

      'The Mikado'....but what else? On the grounds of probability I'd say you're correct. Notice the 'three minstrels' with their mandolins(?) at the back, a prominent feature of the opera. The Mikado has always been an exceptionally popular opera for school performances.

      Definitely the Mikado and what a stunning photo? This is such a beauty, thank you for putting it up. I have it on CD and frequently listen to it when driving. It was one of the first light opera's I was taken to and the memory is still as bright as it was on the night.

      I think they are just outside the door visible in this Streetview of the convent.
