GALLI-CURCI AT GREENVILLE
The Possessor of the Perfect Voice
to be Heard October 17th.
Amelita Galli-Curci, the matchless
Coloratura Soprano, -who will be heard
at Greenville in the Textile Hall, Oct.
17t4 was engaged for just two per
formances with the Chicago Opera
Conftany. SAV$ sang twenty the
flist season, and always to sold
out houses. The conditions -prevail
ing in Chicago, as the season was
drawing to a close, is aptly described
in the Chicago Daily Journal.
"When the curtain is finally rung
down for the season next Saturday
night, she will have sung here some
twenty times. Since her third ap
Pearance, the length of time that it
took for the knowledge of her pres
once to percolate through the opera
going public, a frequent spectacle in
the Auditorium has been that of the
patron who came to buy seats for "the
next Galli-Curci performance," with
out reference to what it .was.
"To say that she has a perfect voice
means little; you must hear hot to
iealize what a wonderful thing a per
feel voice is. Add to that her grace
of domeanor, her sense of the stage,
her sense of fun in an opera like "The
Harber of Seville," and you have an
art-ist for whom the word matchless
(is but a poor, pale thing."
