With the concert to-morrow night,
in which Mme liappold. of the Metro?
politan Opera Company, Is presented
for the first time in Richmond, the
RadcUffa Series closes Its most suc?
cessful season with a musical climax.
So many grand opera singers are not
altogether happy In concert or recital ,
that Mr. R?del I gs hesitated long be?
fore selecting one for this concert, be?
ing iehntWined to give his Richmond
public an opportunity to hear a singer
whose sustained efforts in the heavier
work of opera had not diminished the
beauty of her pure singing tone. For,
while operatic work ts strenuous and !
exacting to a high degree, the artist
bj always assisted It. opera by the I
er.hanvlng efforts of costume, scenery,
gad dramatic atmosphere, besides the
support of a large orchestra, and un

concealed by the aid of spectacular or
In Mme. Happold. however, he has
found an artist abundantly equipped

the best masters of the voice, to stand

Tra!l Divides" the Indian marries her,
only to give her up afterward. It Is a
delicate subjeet to handle, and takes a
master hand to place it before the
public In the right light and to elimi?
nate all offensiveness. Mr. FKflson
has done this and more in his dra?
matic version. He has created a char?
acter, "r;o matter what his race or
creed," who endears himself to his
audience, and the sympathy is with
him at all times. He brings out traits
of courage and devotion that no man
has ever attempted before in chroni?
cling th< Ufa of the brave redskin.
H< h;is given a new character to study
and lias created a sympathetic bond of
friendship which has never before ex?
isted. Messrs. Kliint and Oazzolo have
given Mr. Edeson's play all that could
l>e in the way of cast and production.
The Bijou Theatre will offer this
play for one week, beginning to-mor?
