Florodora and Baby Doe Tabor

Michael Crozier, our Cyrus Gilfain in Lyric Theatre's upcoming Florodora is also involved with Berkeley Opera's production of Douglas Moore's The Ballad of Baby Doe. According to this website of "Opera Performances in Old Colorado"
Florodora played at the Tabor Opera House in Leadville, Colorado on Jun 24th 1907.

This was 8 years after Horace Tabor died, but Baby Doe was still alive and, I presume, living at the Matchless Mine. I'm guessing that she was probably too distressed by 1907 to see this production of Florodora, but you never know.....

Florodora is like the Kevin Bacon of musical comedies, with more music history connections than even Cellier's Dorothy.
