"Carmen" Splendidly Dono by Amateurs at the
Ono of Arnold Bennett's people says, some
where, that outsldo of AVagnor thero is but
ono great opera which has a great libretto,
and that is "Carmen." Tho production by the
Philadelphia Operatic Society last night was
nmplo proof. "Carmen" Is so lino that It is
nmateur-proof, It Is almost beyond human
power to spoil It, but the talented amateurs of
the society showed to a remarkable extent how
lino it could bo made.
In the first place, It was well produced the
staging was adequate, tho little misfortunes of
amateur work were surprisingly absent, the
ensemble movements were well executed and
tho costuming -was tastefully done. Then the
nctlng was unusual, not only for amateur per
formances. The acting demands which "Car
men" makes on Its slngors nre greater per
haps than that of any other opera, and tho
Mars last night satisfied those demands to the
last detail. Finally, tho singing was good, and
the dancing was good. What moro could be
Individual honors went to Miss VIvlenne
Segal from tho moment she made her capti
vating appearance. Miss Segal's Interpretation
of the part was more Bizet than Merimee. 8ho
was too pleasing, not half vicious enough. But
the lilt in her voice nnd In her movements was
so thoroughly fresh, nn Incarnation of nen
ley's "wanton and wondrous nnd forever well,"
that one forgave the sweetness which should
not have been. Miss Segal's voice Is a rich
hut not too powerful mezzo-soprano; Its weak
ness came out In the dance song of the second
act, for example. But It was well sustained,
and, considering that the singer had to strug
gle with tho English libretto, It was rather
wonderful. Mr. Rothermel's Don Jose was
acted with a certain humor, but his voice wai
cloudy at times, and only In his bravura pass
ages showed Its strength. Horace Hood as
Escamlllo roared the Toreador song In splen
did voice and character, and Adellim Paul
Nonr as Mlcaela and Adele Hassan ns Fras
qultn gave careful interpretations of their
parts. The Individuals ware all so good that
to mark out certain ones seeing Invidious.
Those, however, in the star parts, were stars.
Wasslll Lepi conducted the opera with fine
The extraordinary thins was that this per.
formance fell thort In a way utterly unknown
before. Most amateur operas are faulty be
cause they imitate professionals too much. The
direction of this performance. In a praisewor
thy attempt to cseapo the obvious, erred by
exepss of zeal. They forgot that at a given
moment their street in Seville becomes no
longer a street but the apron of -a stage on
which a man is singing a lyrle. So, in the
first act. bits of genre work by the choru-j
effectually spoiled one of Mr. Rothermel's
arias. The members of tho chorus passed in
gay and far too lnteretin bounty behind him,
while he sang. The Idea wa not at fault, but
And quite upart from the merits of this
production. last night gave great argument in
the matter of opera In English. When singer
have to itruggle with "Love you not me. love
i men you, ami nave to make it tit Caimen
Cita's soPi,-. it can be truly mid ihat the great-
est enemies of opera in English are the operas I
now in English.
"Whirl of the World" Lyric.
FLASHES FROM "STARS"
For musical comedy scores we havo depended
for years mainly upon European composers.
Our musical comedy successes, to a great do
gree, havo come from Vienna and Paris. In
fact, as we stated tho other day, there are
but three composers in America who under
stand musical comedy requirements Victor
Herbert, Ivan Caryll nnd Rudolph Frlml. That
foreign composers and librettists are fighting
In tho European conflict may partly account
for the lack of new musical comedy produc
tions this season. On tho other hand, as Henry
Savngo has stated, producers may be detained
from making such extensive financial Invest
ments ns musical comedies require under the
present financial conditions. Whatever the cause,
there have not been so few musical plays for
many years as thero are this season. At thlu
tlmo last year thero had appeared In Novr
York "Adele," "The Marriage Market," "Sweet
hearts," "Miss Caprice," "Her Little Highness"
and "The Little Cafe," with "Tho Madcap
Duchess" and "O, I Say" under way. At the
present time "Tho Girl from Utah," "Pretty
Miss Smith" and "Chin Chin," are tho only
new productions In Manhattan. Outside of
New York, "Papa's Darling" Is playing In
town; "Tho Debutante," which will be hero
next week, has been in nearby cities, and
"The Only Girl" la schedulod for an early
Manhattan production. Curiously limited ns
the productions havo been, tho really great
successes so far this season have been In mu
sical comedy. Montgomery and Stone have
repented the tremendous hit achieved here nt
tho Forrest Theatre at the Globo In New York,
and are said to be the greatest attraction there.
Depressed by the war, It is only natural peo-

pie should desire such vlmclous and beguiling
entertainment as fun and drollery set to music
afford. Here Is a field of unlimited opportunity.
It Is unquestionably true that our predilection
for foreign music nnd art has discouraged
national Initiative, and if, as Outzon Borglum
has repeatedly sold, sculptors and painters
have neglected original work for more profit
able hack work, this Is true also of composers
nnd librettists. The effect of the war in thU
respect, as to whether It will force managers 3
to discover new talent or causo Incipient genius
to assert Itself, will be Interesting to obsorve.
Eleanor Painter, who sings the title role In
the Dlppel Opera Comlque Company's produc

Walkervillo, la. At an (arly age, with her
