HAWAIIAN OPERA HOUSE.
Performanco of "Patieacs"
A Great Success !
Tho performance of Gilbert and
Sullivan'! i-omiu opera "Patience"
in the Royal Hawaiian Opera House
lust evening was an event that will
long bo remembered with most plea
surable feelings by all who were
fortunate enough to be present.
The building, long before the cur
tain rose, was filled with a fashion
able and appreciative audience.
In the Royal box were Their Maj
esties tho King and Queen, Their
Royal Highnesses Princess Liiiuoka
lani and Princess Poomaikclaui, nnd
Hon. John 0. Dominls.
The box opposite was occupied by
Her Royal Highness Katulani, at
tended by Miss Reiseberg, Misses

At 8 o'clock the curtain rose and
disclosed twenty love-sick maidens,
dressed in tusthetic costumes, group
ed about the stage. They play on
lutes, mandolins, etc., as they sing,
and all arc in the last stage of des
pair. The grouping, medhuval 14th cen
tury costumes, together with tlie
graceful bearing and movement of
this bevy of fair damsels, formed a
striking picture, which was greeted
with deserved applause.
The opening choius, "Twenty
love-sick maidens we, love-sick all
against our will, etc.," was exceed
ingly well sung, and the young la
dies succeeded in looking very un
happy indeed, whilst making known
in plaintive song tneir woe begone
condition, consumed, as they were,
by a hopeless passion for the poet
Bunthornc a most decided case of
Whilst this melancholy assem
blage of interesting damsels were
swapping notes on their bad pros
pects, Lady Jnnc (Mrs. F. P.
Hastings), enters upon the
sceno, and electrifies them by an
nouncing the fact that Bunthornc,
the cynosure of all their eyes and
hearts, was in love with Patience,
tho village milk maid.
Tho entrance of "Patience"
(Miss Rose Makee), herself at
this moment charmingly at-
tired in a milk maid's costume
(happy milk maid to possess such a
dress) was loudly applauded, The
blithe and ,Hvcly song beginning, "I
cannot tell what this love may be,"
in sucli marked contrast to the sol
emn lovesick "damsels" around
her, was as a gleam of sunshine in a
These young ladies then leave the
stage singing tlie old refrain
"Twenty love-sick maidens we,"
and are hardly out of sight w hen in
inarch twenty dragoons, old vete
rans every one of them (?), and
forming in line, sing a patiiolic cho
rus, and look very stiff indeed, as
the true. military man ought to do.
Colonel Calverley's rollicking song
"The Heavy Dragoon" was render
ed in excellent style.
Upon the ladies entciing once
more upon the scene, singing a
mournful ditty bewailing their sad
condition, tho war-like Dragoons
filled with envy and Indignation at
the preference shown for the
"melancholy literary man" sing
with much energy the chorus, "now
is not this ituictilotiB ' etc.
Lady Angela (Miss Rhodes) sang
witli much sweetness, "Mystic Poet
hear our I'rayir," evincing musical
talent of high order. Nor should
we omit the Lady Ells, (Miss Mist)
whose voice in tlie pathetic render
ing of "Though so Excellently Wise,
etc.," reached every corner of the
packed house with the clearness of
a silver bell.
The part of the Poet Bunthorno
wna taken by Lieut. Pears, of II.
M. S. Cormorant, and the excellent
acting, and perfect rendering of tliu
dilllcult imisic allotted to that
character, made him a favoiitefrom
The nrxt song by the Colonel
(Mr. Atkinson) "When I first put
this uniform on," with chorus by
the Dragoons was an immence suc
cess. The Colonel had to lcspond
to nn cilcoro.
Bunthoinc (Lieut. Pears) then
nppenrs, and, in an intensely melo
dramatic style, sing3 "run I alone."
Lieut. Pears' clever mako up as nn
asthetic poet, with a lily in ono
hand, added charm to a very
clever interpretation of this song,
which was gieetcd with well merited
The Duet between Patience and
Angela (Miss Rhodes nnd Miss
Makee) "Long year's ago," fairly
brought down the house. In res
ponse to prolonged applause, they
appeared again and repeated the
Grosvenor's (Lieut. St. John)
duet with Patience "Prithee pretty
maiden" was leceived with loud
plaudits, and the dialogue which
followed showed considerable dram
A notable feature of the evening
was the entrance of the maidens
singing in choius "Lot the merry
cymbals sound, etc," led by Miss
Dora Dowsctt and Miss Edith Wode
housc, the former with cymbals and
the last named young lady playing
ancient double pipes, all dancing,
in dignified but graceful style, a
"gay but classic measure."
The scene in which Bunthorno
decides, by the advice of his solici
tor, to put himself up to bo rattled
for, when that individual was alter
nately blessed by the maidens and
cursed by the dragoons, and finally
had to bent an iguoininous retreat
fiom those indignant veterans, was
To enumerate all the parts worthy
of mention would occupy more space
than can be spared, but we cannot
omit special mention of Mrs. F. P.
Hastings, whose impcisonation of
the Lad)' Jane was perfect.
Her magnificent presence, viva
city, and notwithstanding a bad
cold, a telling voice, brought down
Patience's ballad "Love is a
plaintive song," was sweetly rend
ered and deservedly encored.
The sestette"I hear tlie soft note,"
one of Sullivan's happiest produc
tions, was exceedingly well sung.
The opcia wont smoothly from
first to last, without a hitch uny
wheie, reflecting tlie greatest credit
upon all concerned.
To Lieutenant Pears, It. N., the
leading spirit throughout, especial
thanks are due, and, we are sure
that his untiling zeal and hard work
has been thoroughly appreciated.
