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?'

Gabrielle Ray – The Daily Mirror – Friday 29th September 1911

FOR THE FRENCH SUFFERERS.

 

 Remarkable Support for Madame Rejane’s Liberte Matinee at the Hippodrome.

 

The list of artists who have expressed their intention of helping Mme. Rejane at the Hippodrome matinee increases hourly.

The following was the complete list at a late hour last night:-

Sir Herbert Tree, Joseph Coyne, Charles Hawtrey, Auguste Van Biene, Cyril Maude, Marie Tempest, Sir John Hare, Lena Ashwell, Granville Barker, Violet Vanbrugh, C. H. Workman, Irene Vanbrugh, Oscar Asche, Lily Elsie, Sir George Alexander, Phyllis Dare, Dion Boucicault, Adeline Genee, Gerald Du Maurier, Gertie Millar, Robert Loraine, Kate Cutler, George Grossmith, Iris Hoey, Arthur Bourchier, Margaret Cooper, W. H. Berry, Florence Smithson, Huntley Wright, Olive May, Alfred Lester, Cecilia Loftus, George Graves, Gabrielle Ray, Albert Chevalier, Connie Ediss, Harry Tate, Clara Evelyn, Arthur Prince, Evie Green.

Many others express themselves as “delighted to give my assistance in any way you may decide.” The booking is so heavy that there is a great possibility of the prices being raised and even doubled. One hundred and fifty pounds worth of seats was booked in an hour yesterday.

Lavish schemes of decoration are being put in hand. The souvenir programme should be unique – a thing of originality and artistic worth.

Signor Leoncavallo has not yet divulged his secret for the performance, but The Daily Mirror learned yesterday that lie had decided to conduct the music from the third act of  “Zaza,” his new opera which has not yet been heard in England.
