Eugene F. Clarke

Eugene Clarke, an actor and tenor who specialized in comic opera, made his theatrical start during the 1871-72 season at the Brooklyn Theatre. Among his roles were Henry in "Guy Mannering" and George in "Our Mutual Friend." Clarke joined Ruben's Grand English Opera Company in 1878, where he was considered a young singer with a fresh voice. In 1879 Clarke sang Captain Corcoran in the first New York staging of Gilbert & Sullivan's "H. M. S. Pinafore," at the Standard Theatre. Throughout the 80s Clarke worked with the Mt. Morris Theatre comic opera company and Maurice Grau's opera company. During the course of his theatrical career the tenor continued to perform as a concert vocalist. Clarke poses here in costume, probably from Gilbert & Sullivan, at the Warren studio in Boston, circa 1875.
