Comes to Chase's Theater on
Afternoon of February 7 for
Hiss Mary Garden, the celebrat.nl
prima donna, will make Iter only ap
pearance In Washington on Friday af

ter, In her latest success. "Tosca."
Since the American cantatricc first bang
this dramatic part at the Opera Com
Ique, in Paris, last summer, her In
terpretation of it has ben the subject
of Unusual discussion, 'both" critics and
public agreeing that 'it Is by ' far the
greatest achievement of her career.
Miss Garden recently sang the role
in "Chicago and so great' was the in
terest to hear her that despite the,
fact that the performance was given
on a special nlsht the entire housa
was -sold out for five days prior to the
performance. At the conclusion of the
first act. Miss Garden was called be
fore; the curtain seven times and at the
end of the second act so insistent and
vociferous was the applause that sh5
was brought before the curtain nine
teen 'times- and literally showered with
flowers. The enthusiasm lasted fifteen
-minutes and the radiant singer after-
ward declared that It was one of the
greatest ovations she had ever been
Not only have Miss Gardens singing
nnd nctinir aroused especially enthusias
tic comment, -but her costuming of the
part is most orignal and is so artlBUC
that It is likely to result In a rcnnald
ance. of the directoire -style of gown.
Uer frocks are of this picturesque, per
iod and they are so gorgeous ana sti-ik-ing
that the Chicago papers have dc
vnKKi rolums to their description.
Miss Garden will be supported by some
of the .greatest artists of the Chicago
Grand Opera Company, and the cast In

The Philadelphia Orchestra "will be

new leader, Leopold Slowkowski, at ihe
New National Theater, Thursday after
noon, February in at t: o ciuck.
The repertoire of the Philadelphia Or
chestra at present is enormous, and
Vr Rtntnw.Trf has found that it Is -equal
to anything. There is. nothing in the
modem .rapse of the most complicated
compositions that the orchestra has not
at one time Or anomer essayeu. iuuu
ing the most difficult compositions of
Strauss, a triumph being secured in this
music when the "Slnfonia JJomcstW
was played here at the time that
ctraiiE. vfnttif1 America.
As will be remembered, when this
amazing composition, calling for 13o
men, was played in New York there
was a breakdown, but the Philadelphia
Orchestra, re-enforced for the occasion,
gave it without difficulty, and so elo
quently that"? Its Interpretation -was
hailed as the authoritative Interpreta
tion of this great work of art In Ameri
ca, It being the first orchestra to play
it oufsldfl of the experiment made In
New York under the direction' of the
composer himself.- .
Not only does thr orchestral reper-

Mr. Stokowriti has Inherited from his
predecessors an orchestra made to the
hand of one who. knowing that no
Technical difficulties need deter him
from any Interpretation. Is perfectly
frce to work out any composition known
to modern repertoires along the lines
of his own genius.
It Is not only a matter of technlc,
however, since the orchestra by long
familiarity with the older schools, the
romantic music, and the music of the
classical masters, has acquired a feel
ing and sympathy for these schools
which has revealed Uself when directed
by the inspiring baton of the new
-conductor In the series of programs
already given In Philadelphia in an
overwhelming manned that has won not
