liy far the best rendition ol an opera given
by the Carlelon Opera Company dining its
present engagement nt Albaugh's was that of
'Dorothy" last week. The characters seemed
especially to tit the several members of the cast,
anil the- spiightly music, kept well up tb time
by Director rials, carried with It an Inspiration
to do good work. Mr. Carleton as Geoffrey
Wilder was seen at his best, and .Mr. Murray
as Squire Hantam had a better opportunity to
display his line voice than he has had hereto
fore. The music of the role of Dorothy runs
very high and demands more than averago abil
ity for Its proper rendition. Therefore, to say
that Miss Vincent gave a very acceptable per
formance is commendation enough. Her voice
'is rather sweet in tone, but is somewhat marred
by a slight trcmulo quality, which it would be
difficult to eradicate. Miss Alice Carle gave
her usual finish to the music and acting of the
role of Lydia Hawthorne, and Miss Langdon
made a very charming Phyllis. Mr. Bigelow
was very funny as Lureher, and he was ably as
sisted by Miss "Wisdom as Mrs. Priiett. There
is one point, however, on which Mr. Bigelow
should be better instructed. It is the habit of
creating laughter during the solo work of other
members of the company. Particularly marked
and inappropriate was this attempted detrac
tion last week on every occasion when Mr.
Murray sang his solo. If the comedian must
usurp the stage rights of others, let him select
some lesser appreciated member of the cast
than Mr. Murray at whose expense to impose
his originalities. The chorus was excellent and

"I.lttlo Nujrgot" at the liljott.
The- comedians, Hubert and .Toe Cawthorn,
will beat Harris's Bijou Theatre this week with
thclrcomedy, uLlttlo Nugget." The play Is a
conglomeration of fun, music, songs, dances,
witty sayings, and clever specialties. It was
constructed with the Idea of making It a mirth -provokcr
paramount, and while It tells a good
6torj, It is asa fun maker that it takes its Kink
as a public favorite. It has pleased crowded
houses, and those who want hcartv laughs will
be justified in looking to "Little Nusget" for
an abundance of them. The "Nugget" quar
tette is one of the features of the show. The
heroine of the play is known as Little Nugget
and the part Is taken by Miss Goldtkwatte, who
has been praised wherever seen for her dash and
Troubadours at the Panorama.
The Venetian Troubadours will make their
first appcarenpe at the Bull Run Panorama
Monday, at 2:30 P. M. The troubadours are
seven beautiful ladies dressed in very pictur
esque costumes. The ladies play on the man
doline, and their performances arc said to bo
wonderfully pleasing and attractive. Two con

An engagement which will prove of more than
ordinary interest to theatre-goers in general this
week is that of the brilliant emotional actress,
Maude Granger. She will make her reappear
ance in this city at the National Theatre to-morrow
night for tho first time In four years. "With
the exception of occasional engagements in New
York and Boston, Miss Granger has been some
what In retirement for the past two years, pre
ferring the comforts of her elegaut home in up
per New York to the discomforts of traveliug en
Toute. "While in Paris about a year ago she at
tended a performance at tho Theatre deL' Appli
cation of a play entitled "L'Heritage do Helene."
The drama was written originally in English
and then translated and produced in French at
tho pretty dramatic temple connected with the
famous Conservatoire. One of the authors of
the play was Mr. Richard Davcy, a well-known
English playwright and critic. " The other was
Mrs. Lucy "Hooper, the wife of Gen. Robert
Hooper, and who for the past sixteen years has
been the American correspondent in Paris of
several of our most promiuent newspapers. The
play made a decided impression, and was warmly '
applauded by the French critics, and particularly ,
by M. Fraucisque Sarcey. The presentation of
the play was a swell event, and was witnessed
by the elite of the American and English colo
nies iu Paris. Miss Granger, who was among
the audience, saw iu it a great opportunity for
an emotioual actress. She at once made Mrs.
Hooper an offer for the play, but that lady was
loth to part with it at the time. She told Miss
Grauger, however, that she knew of no other
actress bettercalculatcd to play the rule ol Helen
Carrulurs than she, and would give her the
preference. After the Paris production Mrs.
Hooper had many offers from the leading emo
tional artistes of the French ami English stage.
Last winter the play was produced at the Madison-Square
Theatre, New York, by Mr. A. M.
Palmer's Company. Miss Granger witnessed it
there also, and immediately after the perform
ance drove to Mrs. Hooper's residence and made
her another oiler, which was accepted. Since
tho Paris ami New York productions consider
able comedy element has been introduced, an
important fe'ature which was lacking in the origi
nal production. The play is described as pecu
liarly iuteuse and dramatic. For a play of this
nature it is certain that the American stage has
no litter artiste than beautiful Maude Grauger.
She is unquestionably one of the most brilliant
and versatile actresses we have. A competent
company will support her, among whom are Mr.
Harry Mainhall, Mr. John Flndlav, and Miss
A ltovUail of "The Mikado."
Gilbert and Sullivan's tuneful, picturesque,
and amuslug opera, "The Mikado,'' the latest
great success which the famous collaborators
have made, will be revived for the fourth week
of the prosperous spring and summer season of
the Carleton Company at Albaugh's ou Monday
night. Although this opera has been given here
times innumerable in the last four seasons by
compauies good, bad, and Indifferent, it has in
variably drawn well, because it is a work that
aiuioet"plays itself," as the saying Is. It Is
full of airs that woo the ear, and the laughable
absurbities of. its characteristically Gilbcrtian
situations are plain to every eye. " Mr Carle
ton's production of it will be" notable iu a
way, because for the first time in this eltv a
lady will be seen in the part of Nunki-1'oo.
Miss Alice Carle, whose dash and vivacity are
well known, will assume tho role, and make it
the most interesting Nanki-Poo ever seeu hero
without doubt. Mr. Carleton will be the Mi
kado, Mr. Bigelow the Ko-Ko, Mr. Murray the
Pooh-Bah, Miss Laue tho Yum- Yum, Miss Yin
cent tho l'ltti-Simj, MUs Laugdon tho Peep
Ho, and MUs Clara Wisdom tho Katisha.
