Opera Singer. As a young girl she performed signing and playing guitar for audiences. After studying in New York City, New York, she made her stage debut there in 1871. Traveling to Paris, France, she further studied there, and was awarded a contract with England's Royal Opera company, with whom she made an appearance as 'Marie' in "Daughter of the Regiment" at Convent Garden. Permanently returning to the United States in 1876, she formed the Abbott English Opera Company, which was managed by Eugene Wetherell, whom she later married. She became popular for the 'Abbott kiss", and operas she performed in included "La Traviata", "Romeo and Juliette", and "H.M.S. Pinafore". (bio by: Laurie)
