Alice Julia Burville (11 July 1856 - 4 July 1944) was an English soprano and actress, best known for her performances in Gilbert and Sullivan operas and other operettas in the 1870s and 1880s. Beginning her West End career by 1874, Burville played leading roles in a variety of operettas. She also toured in Britain and America, appearing there with Lydia Thompson's troupe in 1877. She performed frequently with Richard D'Oyly Carte's companies, joining his Comedy-Opera Company at the Opera Comique in 1878-79 where she played a role in a curtain raiser to H.M.S. Pinafore, while covering the role of Josephine in that opera and playing the role occasionally.
