13ND OF OPERA SEASOX.
BrllHnut Audience Attended the
Performance of "Faust."
Siebel , MatUeld
Martha "Van Cauteren
Tiic season ot grand opera at the
Larayctte Square Opera House, under the
direction or Dnnuoschaud Ellis, came to a
close last night with a perrornmuce or
Gounod's "Futiht." It will stnud close
to "Lohcngriu," as the second best pre
sentation oC tho week. Socially the evening
was most brilliant, possibly because it
was Melba night. Every box was occupied
with the most distinguished audience which
has assembled in tlie pretty Lafayette
roraverylong tune. The sweep of orchestra
chairs presented a bank of beautiful cos
tumes, and theupper tiers contributed some
what to the color of thuocciWou. Tempera
mentally the audiouoe was warmer than
usual. The familiar solos and chorees of
Gounod's masterpiece were given the ap
preciative recognition which was wiUield
from almost equally good music earlier .11
Melba wat the heroine of the evening
berorett wasoer. Though not up to her
standard early, she sang divinely at the
cloKj.Iarguerllelsnot a strikingly dramitlc
part, and consequently it is within the
dramatic limitations of the diva without
aggressive consciousness on the part of
the audience that it is witnessing a per
formance in which there is a deficient
quality. Moreover Melba peerless vocaliza
tion makes one forget all but the peruasive
loveliness of the great voice. As she threw
hcroelf into the grand trio at tlie end aud
gave forth the brilliant gorgeous notes, it
wan with difficulty that the audience re
strained the veiling enthusiasm. At the
end it burst lorth and demanded a repetition
and could have heard it again and aguin.
Campuuail was faitly lionized as Valen
tine. His performance was on the same
high plane of Melba's, and the audience
lecognlzed it. He has more than the
natural girt ot an exquisite voice aud the
studious acquliement ot 0 perfected tech
nique he lias the tare quality of magnetism
which lalses a performance the mom-nt
he steps upon the stage cud inspires th
audience with a confidence which assists
him and fern. In the tilo with Faust
and Mcphlstc and the ensuing death scene
he was truly magnificent.
Two new singers were Introduced last
night in Messrs. lbus and Boudouresque.
The former sang Faust, the latter Meplils
topholes, and they btand removed iu oppo
site directions from the point where
an artist is acceptable, and no more.
M. Ibos fel' below this standard Into a
plane of mediocrity. His voice is not
qualitatively fine enough to sing in the
companj of his companions of last night.
Boudouresque, on the other hand, was a
welcome new acquaintance. He has a
fine basso voicaof firm power andflexibiltty
mosl agreeable. JJc sang his serenade
well and entered Into the concerted music
with admirable effect. Everyone was
enthusiastic over him. He is one of the
new aitlsts who will be welcome bask
Van Cauteren was an adequate Martha,
and Mattfeld as Siebel realized hundbomely
0-1 the promises Riven by some few of her
opportunities durlug the week. In "Tra
viatu" she had but a few notes of recita
tive as the maid, but In "'Curmen" she hud
several passages quietly Judicative of her
capacities, notably the duo with Van
Cauteren over the curds in the brigands
camp scene, and the quartet in the inn.
Vivianl appeared in Wagner. Tho or
chestra under Damrosch did excellently
and the chorus sang better than Tlurs
day evening, but the scenic and spectacular
opportunities or the piece were studiously
avoided. Listening at this .day to the
glories of Gounod's work, standing forth
brilliantly In the light of comparison with
th ". advancements of other more recent com
posers, it seems incredible that the suc
cess of It hung fire for- several years.
"Faust" was first produced in Paris in
1SB9. yet the fiOOth performance thee
was not celebrated until twenty-eight,
years later, ir- IS87. Iu contrast with this
it is pleasant to note the more recent em
phasised appreciation of the work in the
fact that the one thousandth performance
was celebrated at the opera In 1S94. only
seven years after the seini-mlllenarlan.
