THE EVENING BULLETIN. HONOLULU: H. L, fUvrrnnAY. PEnBMRRH 9 WW
if v '
With the Boston
A casual invitation from chief mnlo
factors of tho Doston Lyrlco to "como
up nonitiu ' tho (scenes for nn evening
performance, wns certainly Bomethlna
to ho thought 011. It meant between
two mill thi eo hours of fine novelty
ami contact nt close rango with n lot
of tho peoplo who nro Just now so
prominently before the public of Ho
nolulu. Tho blit being seconded by n
number of tho Indies becamo nothing
less than n command, and, bcBt of nil,
permission wns graciously given to
imhltah so in o Impressions.
Glroilc-Olrofla wnsjielug given. Mr.
Rogers, tho stago manager and Messrs.
(Hover and Hazclrlgg, tho musical di
rectors nro responsible to Col. Thomp
son nnd tho audience. The chorus mas
ter for his section nnd the principals
for their parts recelvo work nt tho samo
time. For rehearsals chorus mul stara
nro brought to gothcr. Mr. Rogers Is
the monarch until tho curtain goes up
for tho first act. Then success or fail
ure, .brilliancy or mediocrity are with
the conductor. Tho opera artist In a
repertoire company Is to tho nctor ns
the naval man Is to tho soldier. Tho
man In tho marine service of n govern
ment must know all that his uniformed
friend ashore has acquired and n whole
lot nioro besides. Memorizing words
and music for n long opera Involves n
mountain of labor. To some It comes
with comparative ease. To others It
Is n drudge. Comedian Henderson,
who started out with n juvenile l'lna
foie company, has to u llttlo more
than lovlow. Miss McNeil Is llkcwlao
ricdltcd with having an cxtenslvo rep
ertoire. Mr. Hnllam Is n veteran. Miss
Stanton knows "nearly all of tho operas.
Some of tho chorus peoplo hnvo been In
tho business. for years. One girl In
tho chorus they nro nil "girls" Is
said to be perfect with every bar and
every lino of nit operas nnd to bo nblo
for a principal s part had slio the am
bition. With tho majority of tho com
pany members productions mean tho
mosv assiduous ami painstaking genu
ine labor for with tho Lyrics no slip
shod work Is permitted.
At G:30 tho stago seemed very dark,
but tho curious visitor could mnko out
Mr. Starblrd, who handles tho scenery
and lights for tho "house." Ho has half
u dozen assistants, but 6ays the work
with the Lyrics Is nothing In compari
son to wnat Is required by n company
llko tho Krawleys or Clny Clement or a.
Hoyt combination. " Tho hardest night
I over had here," Raid Mr. Starblrd,
was when tho Iloyt company gavo A
Trip to Cmiiatown. You will remem
hcr that In one scene there nro thrco
largo rooms, each one fully furnished
and they ..ad to oo provided with a
rush, licsldcs, tho Hoyt company had
just been orgnntzett and tho stngo man
ager was a new man. Now, tho Lyrics
aro llko a lodgu and Mr. Rogers knows
what ho Is ubout."
Just then one of tho tinge hands
passed along with a "knock down"
stono wall under his arm. The wnll
was fixed In n Jiffy and thon a big
plcco of ocean was dropped behind It
irom above. Tho stono wall was flank
ed with natural wall nnd forest and nt
tho sides In tho foreground of tho
stngo wero quickly erected n church
entrance and tho portico of n palace.
.r. Rogers happened along, glanced
quickly about, gavo a word of approval
ana n couplo of directions ubout light
ing. Mr. Starblrd remarked that ho
was glad thcro was to be but one
change during tho wholo of tho even
ing. Glroflo-Glroflu Is given In two
scenes mm three acts. Miss Stanton,
Miss McNeil, Mr. Hallam and several
other members of tho company entered
In muggy weather street array. They
wcro chitting and laughing, but ex
pressed tho fear that tho liouso would
bo small on account of tho rain storm.
A descent was mado with Mr. Rog
ers. Tho stairway passages aro nar
row, 'iuo trap3 wcio noted and ex
plained mid a story wns told about n
newspaper man ono tlmo bent right up
to tho stago In his rain coat becauso ho
and n fairy Impersonator with whom
ho was talking nnd becomo oblivious to
ttio flight of time. In tho big spaco di
rectly under tho stngo nro scores of
Pucs or costumes nnd accessories and
trunks. It seems nn Indiscriminate
pi.o, but In truth is systematically ar
ranged and la in chargo of two men,
who must do all tho mending of cloth
ing, wigs, etc., nnd who nro kept pretty
in tho dressing room with Mr. Rogers
was Mr. Henderson who Jokingly com
plaincu becauso smoking Is not allowed
In the building. Then ho mentioned
Minneapolis as tho ouo town on earth
wbcro ovcrybody camo to tho theater
when It rained. Mr. Egry, tho violinist
camo In nnd was welcomed. Ho said
lio was delighted to know thoy woro
soon to Elvo Chimes of Normnndy, be
catiBo ho liked Its music nbovo that of
any other opera. Tho mastor vlollu.st
could not understand that It was storm
ing in Honolulu. Ho reverted to tho
sight of plenty of snow on tho Fourth
of July nt Crlpplo Creek, Colo. Mr.
Clover's contribution to tho covcraa
tlon was tho statement that ho felt
tlied nnd ho wanted to know If nnv
ono could tell him what tho trcub'.o
wns. "It It was mo," piped up Mr.
Joel, on his entrance to tho apartment,
Mr. Henderson closing tho door ns
usual, "they would say that Alex, had
that tired feeling ngaln." Tho late it
visitor asked Mr. Rogers about a piece
o. "business" and withdrew, Mr. Hen
derson again closing the door. Mr.
Lgry went to tho other sldo of tho low
er regions to pay his respect to somo
- of tho Indies nnd Mr. Hazelrlgg camo In
and joined Mr. Glover In a corner of
tho roomf-whero they were at onco busy
wiui'u scon) ui mu opera ior mo oven

tried ono of bis entrances. The com

version was to bo supplemented with
tho St. Louis Improvcnls. Tli3' hum

Boomed nil nllkc, but perhaps wero not
exactly tho same.
Mr. Henderson waked up thorough
ly at this Juncturo and Mr. Rogeis be
gan to move. Thoy woro ench doing
two or three things at one tlm. .In
fact thcro was n buzz all nround, lor
tho time-keeper, n major domo of tho
Btngo mnnager's had passed mound an
nouncing In n low, but very distinct
voice, "Fifteen minutes." Perhaps the
most Interesting thing wns iho decor
ation of tho eyelashes. Mr. Hnidcr-
sou cxplnlned that tho eyo became
trained to standing tho trial of paint
shop manipulations nbout It. Mr. Hen
derson nlso displayed his romm knme
fnlso nose worn in ono or lilii charac
ters. It has a llttlo paper windmill at
tachment nnd looks quite natural. Tho
lioae Is fashioned of a. soft material that
can bo Rhnpcd to order when heat Is
uppllcd. Heat Is applied to nil the
paints, candles being Important to have
nt hand. .Mr. Henderson U in u few
minutes transformed fior.i his ordin
al y appearance, that of it young busi
ness man. to the father for tho evening.
The last plcco taken on is tho white
wig, most carefully adjusted and duly
combed nnd brushed alter being In
In the meantime Mr. Rojjlms In Iho

getting himself up as Muurzouk, u

moustache. Ho darkens his faec. puts
on n false beard, a black wig with long
hair, then the clothing, next tho belt,

justment of his cloak. This opcrntlon
came near being a failure iiocmiRO there
had been mislaid somo of the Bafcty
pins Mi. Henderson had bought out of
n hard earned salary at Pittsburg. Hut
tho helper mado a common rlu do. A
messago on tho exact minuter for be
ginning mid closing was received from
Col. Thompson. Miss Leicester a
dashing flguro In tights, called for n
whlto nprou. Miss McNeil dropped in
for a word with Mr. HcndersoD. Miss
Stanton sent u wireless telegram. Two
of the chorus girls camo to say that
thoy had been disciplined too severely
by tho master and Mr. Rogers hail to
Entisfy them. A very distinguished
looking man smiled in upon tho throng.
Ho was in full evening togs. Tho
swell wns Mr. Rockwell, tho baritone,
who wns not in tho cast, but simply ap
peared to say "Hello," to friends. In
response to Inquiry ho said ho was on
tho way to join Tenor Parmley, who
was ulso "In society" for the evening
and who was "out In front." Another
absentee was Miss Andrews, nnd still
another. Mr. Kunkel.
Ono of the costume men brought Mr.
Rogers a stunning turban which ho de
cided, on tho recommendation of Mr.
rfenderson, to wear nnd then discarded
before going on the stage.
Then tho tlmo keeper caller "first
let," nnd ovcrybody scurried nwny, tho
newspaer man In tow of Mr. Rogers.
The company mcnibere went to their
plnccs without orders. Tho overture
struck up. Tho stago manager took n
final glanco ubout, posted himself
whero he could exchaugo nods with the
director, signalled ready, touched tho
belt buttons mid tho curtain wont up
and the applause was heard. It Is In
teresting to nee a play "from behind,"
but It Is not nt all seeing tho play. It
may bo said to lcscmbla n too close
view of an oil painting. You see and
hear scores of things that when In
front you know nothing at all nbout.

for a few had tho "off night" nnd wcro
not present. Ono of the chorus girls
was fearful I angry becauso someone
had stepped on her toes during n dance.
A row secmd Imminent, but Mr. Rog
ers smoothed things out and Mr. Har
klnson coming along produced somo
genuine hilarity with n plcco of news

had called on Miss Stnnton nnd brought
her iiomo Mowers. Miss McNeil wns
