of the American theatre, which showed the
departure of the Manchu F.mperor from

had never seen her. He has determined
even to see the coronation.
The tragic note is first sounded in the
drama when the counsellor tells of two
spies from the court of Pekin which he
thinks he has seen In the grounds of the
palace. The second scene of the first net
shows the throne room of the palace of

The second act passes outside the pavilion
of the empress, who has had a dream which
keeps her awake, so that the women seek

I'nder a flag of truce the Tartar emperor
comes to the citadel. In vain he begs her
to persilade her people to surrender and
