Emily Rigl

Emily Rigl was a dancer and actress from Holland. She was a ballet dancer in the chorus of the original "Black Crook" at Niblo's Garden in 1866 and went on to become a principal dancer. In 1879 the actress performed in "Assommoir" at the Olympic Theatre. Rigl continued to play on Broadway and performed in "Uncle Tom's Cabin" at the Academy of Music in 1901. Emily Rigl was the sister of Betty Rigl, who was also a performer. Here at the Sarony studio the actress casts her gaze downward in an innocent pose, wearing a youthful bonnet and a striped gown.
