1 THE DRAMA

"Divine" of Dancers Metropolitan Opera
House, November 23.
A Timo For Religious Drama
In books nnd plays, as well as In art, the two
subjects of fundamental Interest aro those
which concern love love primarily tho same
under nil Its variegated phases and man's In
stinctive deslro for Immortality. The greatest
novels and plays havo been those dealing with
these, humanity's two most stupendous themes.
There has been, as Sarah Bernhardt recently
said, a popular hesitancy In accepting religious
plays. Nevertheless, of the most astounding
dramatic successes, n great proportion have
been religious. "Ben Hur" Is still playing, and
will bo soon seen again, for tho 16th time, In
Philadelphia. "Quo A'adls" has not lost Its
appeal, ns Is manifest In the production of the
"movie drama." There were "The Sign of tho
Cross" nnd "Tho Christian" memorable suc
cesses ot not one, but many persons.
Says Sladame Bernhardt:
"Tho theatre reflects the thoughts of a nn
tlon; it is Incessantly striving to embody what
la beautiful nnd true. Sometimes It Is far In
advance of public opinion, and must wait until
the right moment has come. This was the
case scarcely 20 years ago In regard to tho
religious question In the theatre. Now public
opinion is more conciliatory, and It Is admitted
that tho religious dramas written In the lost
ten years challenge our admiration by their
grandeur nnd beauty. AVo need more."
