Electra

Electra is a mysterious act, which appeared on a variety show in October 1907 on a bill that also featured comedians, a magician, gymnasts and a dog act. Electra was billed as the dance of 10,000 lights – absolutely the prettiest show ever put on the stage – must be seen to be appreciated. A review of the show stated that the dancer wore dresses of “ever-changing colours and the display of lights makes one of the most artistic and beautiful shows ever seen on these boards”.
