Victor Light Opera Company

Victor Light Opera Company, consisting primarily of Victor in-house artists, appeared in Victor catalogs from 1909 to 1940. Initially, the group performed only light opera and music from Broadway shows. For a brief period, beginning in 1917, the word "Light" was dropped from the name and the Victor Opera Company recorded several grand opera selections. Among the regular members of the Victor Light Opera Company were Elise Stevenson, Elizabeth and John Wheeler, Billy Murray, Olive Kline, Harry Macdonough, and Reinald Werrenrath.
