Her Km ly Life.
Maciame Kistori vvasbornatCivitatti b'rluli,
in the year lb'M. Her latner, Antonio ltie
ori. anci her mother, MadJaleua 1'omareUi,
belonged to the Cavicchi troupe a travelling
company, whose performances extended over
a circuit ol numerous cities in Italy, their lite
full of adventure, and too often, ala! renew
ing the episodes of the "Roman comique "
IShe made her first appearance on the boards
at tho early age of two mouths, when she wai
introduced in a basket in a play called iV 'io
Fear' U'jis. At her fourth year she com
menced to play children's oartj, which she
continued to do successfully till she wiw
twelve jears of atre. At this time she was
engaged, by the celebrated actor and director
Monealvo, to sustain the roles ot soubrctte
and similar characters. Two years later ebe
was mtrusled with the part ot ".Francesca di
liiminl,'! in the tragedy of that name; and the
impression she made in that character decided
the future of her life. She now began to un
derstand tho diilicnlties that beset her position
in any attempt to advance In the study of the
dramatic firt. It was, therefore, with heiri
telt pleasure that she abandoned ber wander
ing life, and availed herself of an opportunity
to join the company of the Kin:? of Sardinia,
under the directorship of Gaetano Bazzl, tho
most intelligent of all the Italian managers,
jind the author of tho best work on dramatic
declamation that exists in Italy. Uosides im
proving under tho counsels of this enlight
ened master, Adelaide found among her new
companions the most mo herly affection and
the lessons of an excellent prolessor, la th e
adm'rable actress Carlotta M.irehioni.
After Madame Mnrchioui retired from the
stage, in 1812, Kistori continued to be the
ornament ot the Sardinian company, which
now included Amalia liestini, one of the most
brilliant. stars ot the Italian stage. In the
subsequent year she engaged with the Ducal
Company of Parma, wu se chief attraction
then was Antoinette Robolti, with whom
Mad'lle Kistori pei formed for some lime.
Jt was at the theatre ol Livorno that
Mad'lle Uisfori made her first creations, and
from 1814 to lSl'J she proved herself to be
simply one of the most accomplished come
diennes in Italy. It was only at a later period
that a new phase in her life revealed her real
genius, and placed upon her brow the diadem
if the tragic muse. Wnicli to this day sparkles
with so much brilliancy.
After having studied and personated with
great succesi tho principal characters in the
companies of Marchioni, of Uettini, and of
Ilobotti, she became the equal of these cele
brities, and sustained all the leading parts in
the higher walks of the drama and comedy,
and wiih a superiority never contested, until
an event of great importance in the life
of the trvficdicnnc served to in. -reuse fie
public interest in her history .
TIic Mnrria.c
In lS4t) she was privately man ied to the
Marquis (Japrenuca Uruli, the heir ot one of
the noblest Koman ducal lamilies. The noble
famdy first objected to the mcxallianw, bat
afterwards when the genius of liistori had
indicated itself were glad to welcome the
distinguished and successful heir. The charms
of her new lile could no; long repress her
passion lor the stage, and availing herself of
an opportunity to save a poor manager from
imprisonment for debt she gave liree repre
sentations for his benefit, which were success
lul beyond any ot her prior achievements.
Iler temporary withdrawal from the stacre
had given her lime for reflection, study, and
observation, and the interval was nobly im
proved. Ilev Studies.
She had not yet essayed the higher forms
of tragic representation, in which the lull
power of her genius was to be developed.
Her first ellort was in 1S48, at the time when
the French were besieging Home, when she
personated "Myrrha." The real tragedy then
enacting was too absorbing in iis interest to
allow of any diversion of public attention to
mimic woes. At the teimina'ion ot the war
liistori undeitook a new study of "Myrrha,"
under the auspices ot an experienced artist
Madame Caroline Jutunari the result of
which is "Myrrha," as she now impersonates
the character "an impersonation so extra
ordinary that Niobe. in her depth of woe.
could not appear more chaste Medea, in her
great revenge, more sublime or Venus, in
the rage of her love, more beautiful."
Appearance 1 u Paris.
At the head of the Iloyal Company of Sar
dinia, Uistori visited all the principal cities in
Italy, until the year 1855, when the project
was entertained ot going to raris. i ne
Count di liossi Federigotti, the possessor of
a liberal fortune sufficient to carry out his
enterprise, wished to organize a company of
the best Italian artists, watt llistorias the
chief attraction, for the purpose ol giving a
series of performances in l aris during the
Great Exhibition. Unfortunately the plan
was not carried on to completion, and betng
abandoned, it was determined that liistori
and M. Riquetti should visit Paris on their
own responsibility.
Kistori made her first appearance in Paris
on the 22d ot May, at the Italian Opera
House, in the character of -Prancesca di
Itimini. When the curtain fell the star oi
Rachel went down tho sky, and that of liistori
shown with the brightest effulgence. The
audience that greeted the debut was not a
very large one, as.but tow persons had the idea
that so brilliant an artistic luminary was
to take us place m me theatrical firmament
By chance only Alexander Dumas, Eugene
.Scribe, and Jules Janin were present. On
the next day the tormer wrote : "Last night
I was at the representation of "Prancesca
di Rimini," at the Salle Vetadour. 1 looked
round the theatre, out uiu not see itactiet.
I beg that she will go and see how the death
scene is ncrformed." M. Scribe called imme
diately on Kistori, and, iu her absence, left his
card, on which he inscribed : "Eugene
Scribe, in acknowledgment of his admiration
for Madame liistori, and with thanks for the
great pleasure he experienced last night."
Jule9 Janin was the most enthusiastic iu her
fnvnr. "liistori. Histori I" ne wrote, "she l
the rage ot tho day ! She is tragedy itself.
She is comedy itself. She is the drama. She
reigns she governs she commands, and the
crowd obeys."
The result of the first appearance proved
Kistori had not over-cstimatea ner pow
em tn rnnauer the sympathies of France,
Each succeeding representation was but a
fresh triumph, and sucn repeatca cans oeiore
the curtain were Li'.herto unknown in the
cor.Ury. Tie raptur" and admiration of tho
jnhiie wi'ie wily .laintly symbolized by the
numerous showers of iicrni gifts nod crowns
thrown at l.er feci.
The Act! 11 R.
It has been said by the French critics that
no one except a French Catholic could imper
sonate the scene at tin- Contertsiona., and de
pict, as liistori does, the solace to the wounded
near: and the lonsoMtious of hope which
Bteat over her as she confesses her er ors to
the listening ear ol the holy father, and le
lieves m rho efficacy of tbe absolution she
receives Irorn him. Every trace of mind
every shade of thought, from the mental Mr
ture that n'llict? her before confession, to the
serenity, tha calmness, and the resignation
thatehaiiicteiiz-j her afterwards is depicted
by Ristori with the most delicate attention.
The blending ot tints, and tho presentation of
each particular nnaucc. intermediate to the
darkness ot mind in the early part of the
scene, and to the tranquil sunshine that
seems to beam upon it when the queen
presses the crucifix to her lips, in the belief
that her sins arc pardoned and happiness
6ccurcd, is wonderful.
The scnsaiion produced by Mary Sturart
was so great that tho Itev. Father Veuillot,
tho chief editor of the Ultramontane journal
L'Univcr. paid a vist to tho Italian theatre
to see P.istori's impersonator! of "Mary
Stuart." So astonished was the good man,
that, contrary to tho rules of his journal, and
notwithstunding that he was liable to give
oll'ense to his religious readers, he wrote a
very remarkable article on the great trajc
dieane, taking care to confess in a postcript,
however, that a theatre was not tho proper
place for him to go to, and that he wa in
duced to visit it solely by the intensity of his
curie s!ty.
By the French press a comparison has been
made betwicn the two chief tragic actresses
of modern times in their performance of the
same character "Mary Stuart." A well-known
cr.tic has pronounced the following opinion
of the relative merits of liachel and Itistoii in
their representations of the unfortunate
Queen: "Uhez Vuneily a la hauteur chcz
Vaulre Velevaiion." Rachel loses sight ot the
susceptibility of the woman's heart when she
portrays the Queen's anger. Kistori renders
that aieer ten times more grand by depicting
it as tbe anger of a devoted woman, whose
position is that of majesty.
The first season euded on the 10th of Sep
tember. S'ie gave thirty six performances,
the gross receipts oi which amounted to half
a million ot francs. This success was so grati
Ijing that liistori secured the theatre lor the
three follow ing years. During her residence
iu l'iiris bhe was the recipient of many gene
rous testimonials ot the et-timation in which she
was held by the most enlightened artists and
literati ol the country. Innumerable por
traits were made of her stai.uottes were
issued in abundance, and busts were in every
window and on every table. A medal was
struck in her honor, and the imperial appre
ciation of her talents was teftitied by the gilt
of a gorgeous diamond bracelet bearing the
inscription, "Napoleon HI to Adelaide Kis
tori." But what she prized above all was, that
Ary Schetler, the greatest of modern French
painters, offered to paii.t her portrait, wh"ch
alone would insure tnat Kistori's name should
go down to posterity, acquiring additional in
terest lrom the tact that it is the painter's last
woik, and not even quite completed, as t ie
drapery is not finished, the painful death ot
the artist interposing to prevent Ins much
chcriifced desire.
1 tl Kiitaitl.
During the recess of the Parisian seasons
Kistori visited England twice, and performed
there with a success only equalled by that
which crowned her efforts in fans. S!;o was
patronized by Queen Victoria, Prince Albert,
and the eulc ol lue ansto.-racy. tier per-
lorinances vied iu splendor and attractiveness
with the crand operatic representations at the
lioyal Italian Opera. Indeed, tho opera
lailcd, while the performances of liistori at
tracted crowds such as Jenny Lind used to
draw, and at prices little less inferior.
To the sensation created oy tne pcriorm-
ances of the great Italian in London, there
was added an intensity ot interest when she
was to appear in Shakespeare's Macbeth and
n Lltzabeit.
Ilcr t'niciv
la Sjinlii,
KiiNla.
C.t'riituiiy, ami
iVitcr having visited the principal cities of
trance and England, Kistori continued her
riumphaui career through Spain, Germany,
and Russia. The costly presents that she re
leived frcin the sovereigns of these countr.es,
oi course, aic very numerous ; but some, in
dependent of their value, are more highly
i nzed by tier tnan peans or rubies, ine
Einpresi of Russia gave her the diploma
of a Lady of the Talace: the Empress
of Austria nominated her as her "Reader;"
and the Queen of Prussia presented to
her an album, on the fly-Ieat ot which she
wrote : "'The Queen of Prussia to Madame
liistori." Rut the most honorable distinct ion
that frhe received is the Order of Merit from
the King of Prussia, saspemled from a costly
gold bracelet, accompanied by a royal rescript
authorizing her to wear it. Histori is the
lirst and only woman that has ever been thus
"decorated."
Ilcr Chnrni tcr.
There is another point in the history of
Histori that lends a charm to her character.
It is that unexceptionable private lite, with
out which no public character can command
the respect ot society and the world. In this
she ranks with Jenny Lind. whose name has
justly become a synonym of social purity.
Kistori, too, like her, is known tor her un
bounded charity, particularly to those who
have devoted their talents aud lives to the
tine arts. Mie is always ready to draw from
her wealth, lor those worthy amortunate
ones who Have not been Messed with pros
perity. This has distinguished her, in what
ever country slip has sojourned. An accom
plithed linguist, she mingles iu the highest
society wherever she goes. Iu this respect, like
the late lamented Madime Sontag, who knew
how do divide ths line between her artist
lite and that of a lady ot title and rank, she
never fails to grace either position that she
mav be called on to occupy.
It should not be forgotten, also, that she
played no smalt part m Italian history during
tho lust three or iour years, a warm ir end
ship existed between her and the late Count
Cavour, with whom she was not only on
terms of social int imacy, but of a more enno
bling friendship, keeping up with that distin
guished statesman a regular correspondence,
a part of which may be found in hU corres-
Sondence, recently published at the Royal
mprimeiie, 'J urin. under the editorial super
vision ot his brother. Among these letters
may be seen one in which Count Cavour
thanks her lor her valuable services to the
Italian cause at the Court of Ut. Petersburg,
ine veneration t,ne entertained lor ttie re
generator ot Italy was the cause of
a conflict between ber and the authorities
of Pans, in 1801. She was there, play
ing, at the peiiod when that great statesman's
death was announced, and from whom, a few
days before, she had received a most flattering
letter. When the sad new9 was promuigatad,
Kistori tauscd a notice to bo placed in front
of the theatre, sUting that ner performaaoes
were suspended in consequence of his de
cease. This was not agreeable to tho au
thorities in Paris, and tho police compelled
her to remove the placards lrom tho vesilbule.
1 hln act so offended her that she at once de
termined not to appear in the city again, and
In May, 1802, she actually performed at Ver
B!illes, and excursion trains between the city
and Paris were estab list ed, to give tho Pari
sians opportunities to enjoy her perform
ance. Two very charming children now reflect
the virtues and the talents of their mother,
whose attention to them is characterized by
the very highest display of maternal love.
Their presence near her seemi to produce
upon her an electric effect, and to inspire her
to exertion In her artistic triumph. The
children never quit their mother. They arc
to bo seen in tho theatre when liistori acts,
and their happy, smiling faces, beaming with
joy at her success, doubtless affords her more
pleasurable encouragement than all the
plaudits, bouquets, and bravos which are
lavished upon her. It Is for them that she
now purposes to visit America, intending, at
the conclusion of her tour, to retire from
public life.
