Those who have visited the
splendid Tabernacle at Nashville
on past occasions would scarcely
recognize the place today. It has
literally been transformed intoa
complete and magnificent theatre,
and for the purpose of accommo
dating the world-famous French
Grand Opera Company of New
Orleans, which will appear there
on Monday and Tuesday evenings
and Wednesday matinee of next
At this time three of the great
est and most beautiful of all the
grand operas will be sung in Nash
ville by this troupe of artists from
New Orleans, giving the people of
this section the opportunity of
their life to hear the greatest of
The three operas to be sung are
as follows: Monday evening, the
superb classic "La Juive;" Tues
day evening, the red rose of grand
opera, "Carmen," and Wednesday
matinee Gounod's immortal crea
tion "Faust." Here is a galaxy of
gems from the operatic world that
can not be excelled, and the man
ner of their presentation will be
the most wonderful this country
has ever known.
There is probably not a place
any where within 100 miles of Nash
ville where Mr. Justin Thatcher,
singer and teacher of vocal cult
ure, is not known. Speaking re
cently of this engagement in Nash
ville of the French Grand Opera
Company, Mr. Thatcher said:
"It is the greatest event of the
kind in the history of Nashville,
and an opportunity which our peo
ple can ill afford to miss. I con
sider the. French Grand Opera
Company the greatest in America,
vastly superior to the Metropoli
tan Opera Company of New York.
Every member of the company is
an artist, and Nashville should be
grateful for the opportunity of
hearing them sing these operas."
Special rates have been arrang
ed on all railroads running into
Nashville for the- dates of these
three grand operas, and hundreds
of Tennesseeans will go to Nash
ville to hear these artists. Seats
are now on sale at the Grand Op
era House, the scale of prices be
ing $1, $1.50 and $2. Orders for
seats from out of town will receive
careful attention. Such orders
should be directed to S. B. Wad-
