Bis: Audience Revels in One of
Mr. l'ucclnl made his second nppeatance ,
In the repertory of the season at the!
Metropolitan Opera House last night. Th'
work selected for the occasion was
"Mudama Butterfly," the cholc being un
doubtedly Influenced by the fact that
Geraldlne Karrar was to make her llrst
appearance conjointly with the second of
Mr. l'ucclnl. The popular Italian com
poser opened the season on Monday eve
ning with "Manon l.encaut," and already
on Friday his slender list of op-'r.n had
to provide another entertainment for a
public which stilt hfiirs his music with

Inn this momentous question. Franz
Hummel, the planlst.w.is once usked which
of Ileethoven's concertos he lllked best,
and he promptly answered "The one I
am playing." The New York openigolng
nubile mlcht give n similar answer to a
similar query nncnt Puccini's operas. Hut
avoiding a discussion of this matter. It
can at any rate be said with perfect safety
that "Madama Butterfly" Is one or tin
best loved works in the Metropolitan list
and thnt Miss Farr.u Is accepted by the
public as an adorable representative of
the fifteen-year-old bride.
I.at evening's performance was one of
high merit. Mr. Sturanl took up the con
ductor's buton for the first time this fall.
and It Is a great pleasure to hi.ike record
of the fact that hW reading of the score
showed more elasticity, more color and
inoie nuance than at any previous pei
formance. With so good an instrumental
support us he piovldid the opera could
fall of Its Just effect only by leason of
gilevous shottcomlngs among Ihe singers,
and these were conspicuously absent.

Hlccardo Martin was tho representative
of the false, fleeting, perjured "'liifcrrfoii.
