owing his monetary program, which was later to result in a 41 per

Metropolitan Presents Wag
tier's Masterpiece With
Notable Cast in Sat

Told By
LACRITZ MELCHIOR
•PHB tltle-r6le of Wagner’s opera
1 “Tannhauser" which lam sing
ing this Saturday afternoon in the!
broadcast by the Metropolitan Op
ara Association, while musically one
of the greatest in operatic litera
ture, dramatically is very difficult
and not altogether grateful. An art
ist, particularly a tenor, naturally
wants to get a sympathetic re
sponse from his audience. It is
something he can sense immediate
ly and It is difficult to do one’s best
without it
But In ’Tannh&user” the hero of
the opera must wait until the last
act before he feels this, when as a
broken and despairing man he re
turns from Rome, doomed by the
Pope, as he thinks, to eternal per
dition, and in desperation determin
ed to return to Venus who had got
him into all this trouble.
Then he wins the sympathy of
the audience. In the first two acts
he is a neurotic, perhaps a madman,
fiuctuactlng constantly between sens
ual delights and spiritual aspira
tions. The artist who interprets
him must portray a man in the
hitnti of forces greater than him
self which now cast him down, now
uplift him. He is a battlefield be
tween desires of the flesh and as
pirations of the soul. On one side
is Venus, the goddess of love, on
the other Elizabeth, the pure wo
man who ultimately is to redeem
him.
Plot Taken From Old Legends
“Tannh&user” is a great master
piece, a notable tragedy built upon
Unas almost Greek in their breadth,
simplicity and symmetry. As in
most of his operas Wagner went
for his plot to old legends and folk
tales.
The minstrel Tannh&user has be
come the beloved of Dame Venus
in her grotto in the Venusburg,
where he has dwelt with her, the
recipient of all the sensual delights
the goddess of love can offer. At
last, surfeited with all these, con
scious of his deadly sin, he breaks
away to seek forgiveness from the
one, who, he thinks, alone can save
him, the Holy Virgin.

News has been received in ’he

home in Coconut Grove, Fla.
Burial will take place there to

The deceased, who was a former
resident of Key West, is survived

tie, the Wartburg, casts its shadow.
There live the Landgrave of Thur
ingia, his niece, the saintly Eliza
beth; there he had lived and had
won the love of Elizabeth before
Venus had caught him in her net.
A shepherd boy is piping to his
flock. A band of pilgrims passes
on its way to Rome. He would join
them, when t{iere comes a hunting
party, the Landgrave, his friend
Wolfram and other minstrels, who
welcome him back and would have
him accompany them to the Wart
burg where is to be held a contest
of song.
How Tannhauser Wins Redemption
Refusing at first, he is persuaded
to go when Wolfram tells him that
Elizabeth still longs for his return.
In the second act occurs the Song
Contest in which Wolfram sings
of love—spiritual love. This is too
much for Tannh&user. He hears the
call of Venus. His madness returns
and seizing his harp he bursts into
a wild song of sensual love, the love
which only one who has been with
Venus can understand.
The assembly breaks up in con
fusion. The ladies retreat in hor
ror. The nobles would kill him on
the spot. Elizabeth pleads for him
and wins bis life on his promise
to accompany the pilgrims to Rome
and there seek pardon from the
Pope.

THE KEY WEST CITIZEN
the civilian conservation corpd trooped to the forests with shovels
and axes and saws. Thousands went to work on bridges, dams, build
ings; even artist and actors came under the influence of the “new
deal.’’ Agriculture was not forgotten. In one of the most important
moves of the administration, provision was made for acreage reduc.
tion and the elimination of surpluses. Seeking to JifV business from
the depression, the president pushed for the creation of the national
recovery administration, which, by codifying industry, aims to better
The Holy Father denies his plea.
His sin is mortal and he has as
much chance of salvation as his
pilgrim’s staff haa to grow green
leaves. He comes back, a despairing,
broken man, in his desperation de
termined to seek again Venus in
her grotto.
Elizabeth is dead. She had waited
at the cross roads to see if he was
with the returning pilgrims. He
was not with them and she had
gone to the castle to die. He tells
his experience to Wolfram and just
as he is about to give himself again
to Venus, Elizabeth’s bier is car
ried down the mountain side.
Filled with remorseful agony, he
falls on it and dies. Green leaves
sprout from his pilgrim’s staff. He
has been redeemed and purified
through the love of a good woman.
Paris Version To Be Used
The opera was first produced in
Dresden in 1845 and the music is
characteristic of the Wagner of
that period, except in the Venus
burg scene which Wagner rewrote
and added to for the Paris produc
tion in 1861. In this the gorgeous
Bacchanale and most of the other
music is that of the Wagner who
wrote “Tristan und Isolde.”
The Paris version will be used
in this performance and in it the
famous overture runs directly, with
out pause, into the Venusberg mus
ic, the Bacchanale and the long
scene between Venus and Tann
h&user. In the second scene of the
first act we hear the Shepherd’s
song, the first pilgrims’ chorus and
the fine male ensemble which brings
it to an end.
The second act opens with Eliza
beth's joyous greeting to the hall
which is so soon again to see the
beloved minstrel; then come the
duo between Elizabeth and Tann
h&user, the entrance of the nobles—
familiarly known as the 'Tann
h&user March” the contest of
song and the long and magnificent
ensemble which closes the act.
In the last act there are the beau
tiful orchestral introduction, the
aeoond pilgrims' chorus, Elizabeth’s
prayer. Wolfram's song to the Eve
ning Star and the thrilling narra
tive of the returned hero.
In this Saturday's performance In
which I am singing the title-rdle,
Lotte Lehmann will sing Elisabeth;
Maria Olazewska, Venus; Fred rich
Schorr, Wolfram; Ludwig Hof
mann, the landgrave. Others in the
cast will be Editha Fleischer,
Messrs. Clemens, Paltrlnieri, Ga
bor and Wolfe. Artur Bodanzky
will conduct.

FORDS INCREASE
DURING JANUARY
\ %
SURVEY SHOWS LARGEST
PRODUCTION FOR MONTH
SINCE 1930 AND GREATEST
VOLUME SINCE 1932
Ford production in the United
States in January totalled 57,575
units, it was announced recently
| at the honfe offices of the Ford
Motor Company. The total was
the largest January production
since 1930 and the greatest volume
j in any month since June, 1932.
Ford’s January payroll in the im
mediate Detroit area totalled ?5,-
500,000.
Actual production in January
was 10,791 units in excess of the
production originally scheduled
for the month. This represents a
23 percent increase over the first
schedule. All of the Increase, it
was said, was required to meet ad
ditional orders from dealers be
yond original commitments. The
demands from dealers following
the presentation of the new Ford
V-8 car for 1934 two months ago
has exceeded even the most op
timistic estimates, it was reported.
Ford V-8 cylinder production
set an all-time record for the in
dustry. the month’s total being 54,-
038 passenger cars, commercial
cars and trucks. The trend to the
V-8 cylinder units in Ford produc
tion has been striking since the
'announcement of the V-8 cylinder
engine two years ago.
As an index to the public ac
ceptance of the Ford V-8 for 1934
are official figures, just tevealed
on January retail automobile sales
in Detroit-Wayne County, in which
the new Ford V-8 accounts for
58.4 percent of all car sales made
during the past month in this
area. The new Ford V-8 account,

liveries on all makes of cars dar
ing January, with a total of 434
deliveries by two chief competitors
in the low-price field.
