Till'. ITALIAN OPERA bEASON.
successful orr:sing last night.
BOTII TEMI_F_S OF MUSIC WELL FATSOS.
IZED.
The senRoti of Itrilinn opera for tliis winter
?was opened last evening at the Mclioi.olitun
OpenHtt?SJ and at the Academy of Music. The
new bouse was filled with a brilliant aud-enoe,
representing much of the wealth and benuttj
of New-York. The Academy of Music also lind
a full attendance, and Mr. Maplcsou expressed
himself as well satisfied. The pei forman-i*
nt both places passed off smoothly.

MR. ABBEY'S FIRST NIGHT.
In its social aspect, th? opening of the Metro?
politan Opera House last night was Inilliimt 1 v
Burcossful. In its artistic lt waa full of
pleasure for tbe moment and of pleasurable
promises for the future. All expectations were aol
realized to the critical among the auditors ami
Spectators, but lt ls agreeable to bo able to note
tbat all tbe managerial promises were
kept. The accessories to tho opera
house wen not all finished, but th" audlenea
roora and vestibule* ami corridors were aiul tiny
were all in this department that wen* needed to
make the first night a WBBBBS, The andlenea
crowded the house; the Interior -(lowed with li?ht
and blossomed with gay toilets ; Ibero was a rea?
sonably prompt beginning, and though the waits
were long and the performance of "Faust" lasted
five hours, then was so much to talk about that
thia was easily forgiven.
Whatever may be the morita of the opera-house
In other reepects it ls a question of lasts whether it
le a success as s setting to a brilliant audience. Its
colnring ls soft and subdued, and In perfect har?
mony with the architecture? it bas a lightness and
airiness about it that seem to lift one's spirit
and make one forget anything like bnstnBSB or care.
to pat one Just In the mood to listen to tbe music or
to be as sociable with his neighbors SB the laws of a
music room w**il allow, but it would uot seem as if
lt were not calculated to show off beautiful dresses
and fair faces to advantage. From the orchestra
Challa last night tho boxes that encircle the room
tier above tier had the appearance nf cabinet
frames half open, revealing brilliant li vim, pi' lures
?almost embedded iu flowers?but the Lin-kground
to these was not dark enough lo show half their
loveliness. Golden heads seemed t*> blend witta tin*
?ld gold of the silk curtains, and
tbe pale Ivory tiut that prevailed elsewhere
failed to emphaslie tho soft silks and satins that
rested against them. Diamonds glittered in all tli
rections like crystals upon snow ; but there was
let thut flashing and blaziug of rays that .fine
from a darker Bettine. __\t lyboly was
In full dress and in the glorious good
spirits that a consciousness of elegant clothes
Inspires. When the opening notes of tbe overture
aounde<l through tin- li .use tin re was a uinmeutury
hush, and then as if everybody had made Ins bow
and done his duty by that everybodjf tuned to Ins
neighbor and began t" ohai in tba liveliest Manner,
Cr turtled completely around iu his scat to get B lull
view of the house, a note sociable gathering it
would be hard to imagine. Everybody seemed
to know everybody and every'.ody seemed to
have something to say. Hut when tbe curtain
arose the eonveisatiOB ceased at once aiul
from that time forth. except between
the acts, the andlenea was attentive te thal
?which was takim; platt' upon tba ala go. applauded
heartily, Ut not with the greatest entliusiasui, and
Seemed to be generally satisfied U'ith ever] thing.
The performance of tho open was on tbe average
plan of pasfotmanoea of ttaa aame w..rk by Mt.
Maples >n and his admirable urt_tee? not better aa
a whole nor worse as a whole. The fears which
had been generally felt ihat .*-ig. C'ainpanini would
not a_>w a complete amendment of tho faults
which were so conspicuous dariag his
last season at the Academy of lltudo were
unfortunately realized. Onasiouaiiy ttaa old-time
Sweetness and again o:?< usionalty the old-time

Such a result la peculiarly ansortunat- in Oonouda

{?**-*? Novara, we have time only to chronicle
a performance of work of the high degree of merit
to which they in part have accusleased us.
Of the mechanical parts of the per?
formance nothing is le be said exoept
words of praise. The pictures were
beautiful all of them. Nothing was shirked, and
the highest skill nnd most delicate in?
genuity seemed combined in constructing BBBMB
of fascinating beauty and almost perfect illusions.
Among the lear legiele that tho evening caused
van this, thai ia spite of the niugiiiticcnt apparatus
vvliiih Mi. Abbey and his musical director
have at their disposal they did not,
go beyond the conventions in tho manner of
the production in anything except tho stage set?
ting*, lt would have beena pleasure, for instance,
aflat so many years of tbe incongruous
in the presentation of " Fau-t " to havo
men tho proper tinier maintained betweesi
the chinch steno and the murder of Valentine.
lt ia Ilia Bama spirit thal cuts ap the drama of to?
day into arts ont* seen-. long and calls down tho
curtain upon a studiously arranged tableau
that his changed the order of tho two
scenes in " Fuu. t." Originally tho fourth
nt closed with the scene in the chinch
as the progress of Goethe's argument requires; now
11, i seeae la almost frequently universally placed
before the death of FtlmtHna in order that the
more s nsitiiuial finnie may he gained. Gounod
hos himself aaactloned ttaa (bange. Appin d
to a few years ago for his views on the
question, ho said to the director of a Fn-m th
Iheatre. "I havo no choice in tho matter?both
readings arc possible anil good. As a musician I
prefer the death of Valentine as a finale; it you make
it to precede the church BOOM you will be more in
harmony with Qoothe chopee." This has always
nettnied to ns n mistaken Judgment on the pnrt of
Gounod. If a dramatic climax is the need, there is
surely more power iii tlrelchrn'x agonizing " Nsota
haiin I suet Elaeotaehen !*' sad her sw mm amidst tbs
poms of ttaa holy ofticc, than In the vulgar killing ?>f

grcv, perhaps, out of the fact that thc librettists
hail already robbed the Bptaode of all its iiitr]i"-e,
character and eeuttaaeot Ly ex. hanging tim "evil
spirit " in which the poet personified Oretoktn'a tor*
mentitig tfOUBOlenOB, with Mcphiftoiihclc*, who
disguises himself as a monk to upbraid
ih- maiden,and thensppearain all bia ridioulona
scarlet like a biig-a-h(.o to frighten the child int*. I
f.iiiii. After such a travesty of the original it la ii"
wonder ttaal Gounod was willing tnat il sh. mid be
put anywhere in Um performance.
sn far as a single performance under such circum
Btanoea could demonatrate thc fact, the iwwtaouaa
wasplu.wtits.be not only Mttsfactory, but renlly
adiniiable in its acoustic propel Ilea, The fear nf
failure ia this teapoot is one which weighs like a
nightmare on eonsoientlona architects, for nothing
la mora generally and frankly admitted nowadays
than that in this province tbe ftchiteci i-- wholly
tbe slave of chance. All the anthoritiea on Beous
ii, s. fin ii Pythagoras down to Tyndall, have failed
to lay down a rule whleh mighl insure to deeigners
of theatres even an average ur moderate degree of
sm,ess. lins was must ingenuously conceded by
If. Gamier after he had made the db*eovery tbat his
masterpiece, the Grand opera in Parla, waa in the
van of all tbe theatres of Europa ia reepeet of
aeouatica, Ia bia book on tba aubjoct bodi_claims
all credit foi the accomplishment. He cont
that he trostod entirely to luck, like the acrobat

Tho amii.-in-.-room of the Grand Opera aaa good

credit is imt mine, I mei.-ly wear th- marks
of honor." Bul aol reckleeeoeee or ign..
ranee led tbe French architect to this course: 11 *v.is
simply tbe outcome of a world of study which be
had given to the subject in all tha years of his
caner thal preceded his great work.
M It is not my fault,1* be remarks, "that ace
aad I can nevei come t<> an understanding, I gave
myself great pains to master tins bisaire science.
i.iii after lifteon yean oi labor I brand myself
hardly io advanoe "f where I stood on tbe Hist day.
True," out of books and from my colleagues l
learned tbat sound ia propagated thus and so, and
tbat strings vibrate in such and such manner. I
saw thal grams ol sand strewn on a glass plate
formed themselves into certain figures when tbe
plate was i nbbed u Uh n fiddle-bow, and knew thal
iiu-air is tin- iinlnuii \ medium thinugh which the
sound is conveyed. I waa as well posted iu these
things os most masters ol icicncc and thought thal
1 I ,ter I should irani to put mr ? misti .1

formulae wt.ubi il" tbe business easily eaongb. I
had read diligentl. in in j i.ks, aud conferred in?
dustriously with philosophers nowfa re did I lint!
a positive rule of action to guide me: on tbe eon*
trarv, nothiug bul contradictory statements. For
long iimiitli- 1 studied, ttmted, questioned every?
thing, and aftei all thia ir.e..ul I made tinnily this
discovery: A room to bari good oustics must
either !"? long <>i broad, high or low, of wood ol
stun-, round 'si square, and so forth.*'
Thus deeerted bj his t> at ben 0 irnier abandoned
theory foi practice, aad made aa inquisitorial pil

iimi Hun h-st results wen obtained Inoaeplace
from wooli ii'iistt ie len anil in another

were widely different aooUstically. Chance seemed

Whether Mr. Cady nmrtilied his Beeb with
much of this stu.ly Imo ih?" nature of thi*
elusive something we du not know. Prob?
ably with tbe example and confession of
Gamier before him ba wan content le follow
In tbe main, the conventional lin.-s of theatre In?

so be can echo his colleague's " Eh bieol Ia Bala

lt is to be hoped that Signor Vianesi will speedily
give an adequate teal to Mr. Cody's innovation in
lim matter of the orchestra. With the earnestness
which was shown last night in the Boonie depart?
ment there should be consorted equal earneetneaa in

the last days of construction convinced BIgnor
Vianesl of what his prejudices had alroatly prompted,
probably, namely: that thc arrangement was prob?
lematical. Mr. Abbey was of a mind with tbe
directors of tbo Opera House Company, it is said,
that the new feature should he retained if it should
turn out to bo u practicable one, but ho was un?
willing to tuke any risk ou bin tirst night, and the
gulf was bridged ov cr. Om* result nf this wat. to put
the drama and hi uss outside '.he orchestra-rail, sud

hope, in the interest of the reform to which Mr.
Cady gave so much care aud thc directors so inurh
inmiey, that the sunken orchestra will bo tested
soon nt a pill fill mantra before un audience, so that
thc fi.'fiusiical condition..n.ay bc complete,and that
if it be not found seriously wanting it bo ietuineil.

unfortunate habit of singing, one might almost say,
with i-icnched teeth, u defeet which is Bearoal

MATTHEW ARNOLD HERE.
A TALK WITU TUE POET AND ESSAYIST.
UI9 IM.ANS AND OPINION'S?Lr.rTI'RES UB WILL
PKI-IVEn? DE8IIIR FOIt CKITICISM.
Matthew Arnold, the distingnlshed English poet
nnd eMsayist, arrived by the steamship Serviayester?
day. A 1 niiii'NE reporter called npon him last even?
ing at the Windsor Hotel. Mr. Arnold has hardly
anything poetical bj his appearance, hut is a plain
English Kentleman. There ia about him, however,
the poliahcd ease and high breeding which mark a
man of reiineiuent and culture, [a conversation he
is most undi'inoiistrative? ming no gesture?but his
i'ye kindles as Li., remarks grow more earnest, and
tho emphasis is expressed hy tho deepening
tones of a musical voice. Those who have seen
portrait! Bf his father, Dr. Arnold, of Rugby, so
familiar to (faders of " Tom Brown's Behool Days,"
wonld instantly recognize him. Ho has the same
?wild looking head, and thoughtful cast of colinton
anea. Nothing eunexeeed tha graciousness of his
manner. He is as simple as a chilli.
" lt a th mis mo pleasure to converse with journal?
ists," he said. " but you must not ask mo to deliver
-raciilaropiuioiisabout things of which I am igno?
rant. For instance Ina I.e ult reporter iu London
Baked BM what 1 thought of American institutions.
How could 1 answer when I nm como to get somo In?
formation about thean. I hope I shall like
(his country| but after all 1 think there is no place
10 live irt Uko dear, smoky old London. How vast
tba hotels me hen*, and how lavish the hospitality,
but 1 fear I shall not get at the heart of real Amor
ican lift*. My lim lecture is to be entitled'Numbers.'
[don't propose a mathematical theory, but to ex?
pound Mime idea.., political anti soeial, after a some?
what original way. Afterward I shall leeturt. on
1 .-.merson,' and then upon ' Ktluerilion and St-ience.'
I batt been asl.cd to hil ute to several universities
and I think the latter subject will be more suitable
t.i liiein.
" 1 he London Time.*, which has never been friendly
lt) me, fame out with a thundering article on my
coming lien*. Lowell, whom I know very well, told
me that I had already an nudieiiee here among the
cultivated. I felt a little doubtful about my re?
ception, betiinse lOUM people ohOOOB ff) BSBOClutB DM
with irreligioua opinions, whereas I nm only inves?
tigating lilith all the time, Somo of my friends
?ranted BM t<> hid for Irish support hy leeturing on
'Celtic Literature,*bili I ttmagbt it Inadviaab-B.
I have alwaya been well received by Caf Indie*,, and
in mv lei mu-on 'Numbers' there will bo mattera
touro "1 upon that will deeply interest them. Car?
dinal -Nev. man has written the kindest things to
lue.
" I am amused to timi thar many people bars
think that Edwin Arnold ia my brother, ile is m.
rel I un wi li rr. li '.k, I be Light of A ila,'
seems t" have taken n great hold lure. It seems to
me "lune unintelligible, and not to be compared
u ith th ? grt ;t! work ot ,**t. Hilaire,' La Buddha.' it
is like the character >>t Christ written by a Jew.
One prefers to go to more authentic ourcr ..
"I thought of going to Concord before lecturing
oi Liu.a.-"ii. but i ii.iii- a is a dreary journey, ? l
haye given il ?:?>. I have alread. remarked tome
things hera w hich seem gn it unprovemeuts on mir
English way. fcXu instance, tipping seems unusual
i is it bas in Tonie a nuisance at home,
