shows her in the character of So Hi in the musical comedy See-See at the
Prince of Wales's Theatre, London, in 1906. She wore this rather
unconventional costume for a duet about two Japanese lanterns, the other
'lantern' being the actor Huntley Wright.

Gabrielle Ray never appeared in an Aladdin pantomime.
We are very grateful to John for
clearing this mystery up.
