HI Thoso who failed to see "Parsifal'
Hj last season when It was here should
H ' not miss the opportunity of going thit
H time. And thoso who did see it last
H season sliould go again. It is one ol
H thoso strango masterpieces of the
H stage which not only excites pro 11 1-
H able controversy, but opens wide av-
H enucs of meditation as well.
H According to tho point of view "Par-
Hl slfal",is allegorical, ethical, historical-
lf ly religious or religiously historical,
with all tho lights and shades of spec-
H ulativo meaning woven into the story.
H It has excited both tho favor and
H disfavor of the preacher, tho laymen '
H and writers who delight in dissecting
H lltcraturo with tho joy of lettered sur-
H anything which can so generally en-
H gage attention is out of the ordinary
