and Marcel Charlier.
Mine. OlatiSHcn is /prima donna
contralto of the Chicago Grand Opera
co;i7>pany and her singing last night
was Indeed a treat to tho music lov
ers of Anderson. She posses a
volco of wondciful range. She is
not only a contralto but u mezzo
i'outralto and a dramatic soprano,
which <is very unusual. Tho quality I
of her 'high notes is the same as|
that of her low notes', and this too,
is very unusual. Her voice is un
usually strong nnd sho has tho vol- I
umo. for tho full climax and the !
. strength t?- carry tho phrases through
to the end without tho loast fatigue.
In addition to her superior volco sho
has admirable quaK,Jcs of Interpre

Probably tho best rccoivod number
on the program last evening was i
Mme. Claueseh's rendition of "Aria
Proin Samson at Datllle." Tho au
.dtenco was especially anxious to
hear this, und they . were not tho
loast bit disappointed in Mme. CIsub
sen in this number.

is concert -meinte r of the Chicago |
Grand Opera company. He is a lyri
cal vtollnlBt and his numbers lait

hotter choice could have' been made.
