"Un Ballo in Mas-
cnera" He Sun.
By Sylvester Bawling.
MR. GATTI-CA8AZZA began the
seventh season of his manage
ment of the Metropolitan Op.
ra Company last night with a pres
entation of Verdi's "Un Ballo In
Maschera." There was a crowded
house, an excellent performance oud,
Upon the surface, a repetition of the
familiar scenes of an opening nUnt
of the opera. Outside the faithful
standees began to gather before sun
set and the limit of admission had
Wen exhausted long before the cur
tain rose. As far as the Rox-ofBre
was concerned the seating capacity
of the house had been sold out days
fo. Invite the lobbies were congested
with devotees renewing acquaint
anceship who delayed taking their
seats. The lights were turned down
to top-heavy galleries ballasted down
stairs by congested spaces behind the
rail, while the boxes were empty and
the orchestra floor little more than

dogs may not be brought to the The
atre. Incidentally, It may be rocorded
that the executive offices last night
wero laden with floral offcrlnjrs to the
singers. One for Caruso was a tree,
under which a full-grown man could
stand. It never could have been pre
sented before the footlights, unless
the curtains were raised, not drawn.
The performance of tho opera was
an excellent one, he caa'. being tho
anmo as thht of last year when It
was revived. Aa Hlccardo, Caruso
was In fine voice, a voice grown
darker, It Is true, but, to some of us,
for that reason the more to be en
joyed. Emmy Destlnn, as Amelia,
singing somewhat shrill at first, soon
found herself and repeated Jier for
mer success. Amatoisang and

Victor Herbert was elected fresldent

lat night. Over 24) mesjbers were celver for the resumption of opera
half filled. Mr. Toscaif nl's entrance
to the orchestra pit, ten minutes
late, brought forth applause which,
strange to say, he acknowledged gra
ciously. By the beginning of the
second act every place was filled and
the season was launched.
To many of us, however, there was
something packing to make the night
the equal of Its predecessors. One
could not, according to convention
and precedent, speak, or write, of the
"brilliant" gathering or of the "glit
tering horse-shoe." The boxes, for
'the most part, lacked color. Tho

them were garbed In tho Alack and

fashion since tho beginning of the
European war. The 'Presidents
proclamation of neutrality went for
naught here, where the tics of asso
ciation and of adulation were so
strong. Then the orchestra stalls
were full of strange "faces. The old
subscribers evidently had sub-let
their seats to people with more money,
many of whom wcro not aulte suro

show of their enjoyment, If they'

Another damper on enthusiasm was
the lack of the accustomed presenta
tion of flowers to the artists before
the footlights which the audience did
not know had been prohibited by the
general manager. It may be all -very
well, Mr. OatU.'to make your average
grown-up, blase subscriber got along
without this divertissement, but how

graces of your matinee Misses, who
enjoy these before-the-eurtaln In
