Gabrielle Ray

'Gabrielle Ray said, 'I am always dancing; I love it! When I don't dance, I sing. What else is there to do?'

Daisy Irving – The Tatler – Wednesday 24th July 1907


In June 1907 Daisy Irving created the role of Frou Frou in The Merry Widow at Daly’s when Gabrielle Ray, for whom the role of Frou Frou was intended, was taken ill. She reverted to a slightly smaller role of Lo-Lo when Gabrielle Ray had recovered, then briefly played the title role in 1909
