PORTIA axd shylock.
In Abbey's Theatre last night Shakespeare's lovely
comedy of "The Merchant of Venice" was pro?
duced, with much magnificence of scenery, and, in
presence of a great and enthusiastic audience, it
was acted with brilliant ability and sharp and de?
cisive effect. Kllen Terry played Portia, and Henry
irving played Shylock. In earlier times "The Mer?
chant of Venice" was customarily offered for the
sake of Shylock alone, and with that view lt was
much mangled and condensed. In Mr. Irving's pro?
duction of It-long familiar on the stage, alike in
England and America,-lt ls given for the sake of
all that it contains, and substantially as Hhahas
peere wrote lt: and when it is thus given, not as a
glorification of a semi-tragic and barbarous Jew,
but as a pure comedy, the story of Portia becomes
the most interesting part of lt. and the character
of Portia ls readily seen to be its most important
and conspicuous figure. As Kdwln Booth and others
used to give that piece, lt was all Shylock. In Mr.
Irving's presentment of lt there ls a fine equilibrium
between the parts, and while that bloodthirsty
Jewish wretch, howling for his pound nf flesh, ls
kept at a rational level, the limpid, sen tic uni
stately presence of Portia,-like the full moon in
A cloudless heaven,-dominates the whole enchant?
ing picture of friendship vindicated and love ful?
Many handsome and gay women have appeared
ss Portia, but the true character, as lt stands In
Shakespeare, wis never fully seen upon '>ur stace
until it was presented by Ellen Terry. The Portia
of other days waa an image of artifice and affecta?
tion, in the sprightly scenes, and of mannish strut
and declamation, In the scene or the trial. She
cared not for Bassnnio. and her dramatic life had
reached its full fruition when once she had de?
livered the speech on Mercy. She was an incident
la Shylock, and thai was all. When Ellen Terry
came, however, to embody Portia, the public saw.?
ss it may see now,?a woman of line intellect and
yet of enchanting beauty; an Imperial woman, yet
one essentially wc manlike, possessing a deep heart
and a passionate temperament, and, nt the same
time, possessed af that arch, buoyant, glittering
piquancy and playluln-ss that are fluent from per?
fect health, perfect Innocence, and perfect kindness
toward all the world. Portia is "a rich heiress."
She has been'reared In luxury. Her state Is that
of a princess All things around her are sumptu?
ous, and her mimi, like her environment, is superb.
Every word of her speech ls noble; every part of
her conduct ls liberal, profuse and fine. That Ideal
cannot be made actual by a commonplace
person. Ellen Terry had only to be herself, in order
to make it real. In Portia's scene with Nerissa.
Morocco, and Arragon, during the first half of the
play, lt is to be observed that she conquers, not
by action, and not by much speaking, but by con?
dition: she ls Incarnate enchantment. Her period
of active expression begins with the scene of
llassanio's choice of the leaden casket. But Por?
tia is, from the first, a lover. Her eyes have told lt
to Bassanio. and her heart has told it to herself.
That note was sounded by Ellen Terry, in her as?
sumption of Portia, with the first word that she ut?
tered; and that has ever been the great felicity of
her embodiment.
When love is at the heart every object is hallowed,
upon which the gaze of the lover falls; every ex?
perience of life is tremulous with the sweet ex?
citement of that divine fever;?for true passion is
ecstatic, and it makes humanity, in its finer types,
celestial. The consummate art of Ellen Terry is
never better shown than In her impartment of thc
personality that goes along with any cardinal emo?
tion. She invested Portia with all the requisite
piquancy, and with the gentle craft that veils her
passionate longing beneath smiles and banter and
raillery; but also she made Portia romantic tender,
ardent, and keenly sensitive.?supplying her whole
being with the sensibility and the allurement of one
who loves. In the satire on the suitors there was no
severity, but only archness, sparkling over grave
and gentle preoccupation. Her Illuminative byplay,
during thc- casket scenes, governed l.y the instinct
of perfect courtesy toward Morocco and Arragon.
disclosed, as no words could ever do. in the seen
of llassanio's choice, both depth of hear' and the
amplest potentiality of imparting bliss. Portia's fer?
tility of resource and expedition of movement, with
respect to Antonio's trial, are winged with love; yet
lt ls apparent that her impetuosity ls speedily
curbed by the refinement -and the perfect poise
which are attributes of her noble nature. Kew of
the women of Shakespeare denote so broad a vis?
ion or such a wide capacity of thought; and lhere
again the acting of Ellen Terry completely satisfied
the Shakespearian standard. There was nothing
puny in lt; nothing narrow: nothing Indicative of
inadequacy and of the pain of effort. An imperial
presence, superb intellectual force, and the absolute
sincerity which befits an occasion of almost tragic
suspense constituted her. In the Trial scene, a per?
fect Image of righteous yet merciful authority; and
her delivery of Shakespeare's beautiful verse --
which often, in this play, ls at its best of eloquence,
melody, and meaning,?made lt more beautiful yet.
By a wise restoration of the last act of the com?
edy,?which, in American staee custom, has usually
been discarded.?Portia ls shown in her triumphant
happiness, when the wolfish Jew has been discomfitqrl,
and her husband and his friends ar-- assembled at
Belmont. The glee of Ellen Terry ls the sunshine
of a guileless, happy heart, and lt mhde that lovely
garden scene entirely beautiful. Those person* who
care for "The Merchant of Venice" should certainly
see lt as lt is offered now, for lhere is no reason to
suppose thut they will ever see Portia so truly and
entirely represented again. There may be other
Shylocks: there ls no other Portia.
In musing on the character of Shylock the ob?
server may well be surprised that any actor should
ever play that nari, except from nc ct Salt if The
main traits of which Shylock ls representative ar
among the most offensive in human nature;?greed,
malice, resentment, hatred, ferocity, malignity, and
the implacable thirst for revenge, ny a deft use
of philosophical theory, and by resort to Ideal ex?
pedients, domestic romantic, and theological, he can.
indeed, be invested with a sort of forlorn po"ti(
loneliness, inscrutable austerity, and baleful gran?
deur; yet. In the fibre of the animal, he remains
essentially unchanged.?an Incarnation ol seething
hate and rapacious cruelty. Such as lt ls. however,
the part has long been held in high esteem by
actors, and many of tiie brightest names lr. the
record of the stage, for more than one hundred nsd
fifty years, are associated with lt. Macklin'* cholci
of lt can be understood. He had a sinister and
dreadful face, a* his portraits show, and various
I tories of him indicate that he possessed tenacious
and aggressive vitality, a strident voice, and a
hard and violent naturi Quin designated the lines
in his face as "cordage," and Quin als , snid of
him, "If nature write a good hand, that man is a
villain." Shylock must have been eas;, for Mack
US. He played ii wonderfully well, and the story
of his triumph In it la, indeed romantic. "1 whs
Charles thc (Jreat. for that night." he said, and
said truly. The selection of it by Henderson, who
was superb in such opposite paris ai Iago uni
Falstaff, may possibly have beep prompted by
his wish to display that versatilitv In which he
excelled all actors, not excepting his renowned con?
temporary David darrick. On the other hami
Oeorge Frederick Cooke, whose genius was at?
tuned to horrors, adopted it by a conventlng In?
clination, and actci1 it with tremendous power.
Edmund Kean's choice of lt ls less explicable, ll"
was very poor, at the time of hi- gre.it hondo- hit
In lt, and, as to fortune, little better than a vaga?
bond: he evidently was in a bitter mood; at-.l -
there being Hebrew blood In his veins,-he doubt
lesa sympathized to the utmost with tin- .lisp;.'!
humiliated, and hieulted Jew. "Kor au Bera ncr I*
the budge of all our tribe." Furthermore Shy?
lock provided him with one of .hose opportunlile ?
that he loved,?io rush about the stage, and to yell
and sob; for Edmund Kean, as an actor, appears
to have oscillated between two conditions, pathos
and delirium?and for delirium the street scene of
Shylock affords uncommon scope. "I never heard "
says the Merchant's friend. Solanlo,
"A passion so roahiscd,
r<o strange, outrageous and so \arinble
Ab the dog Jew did utter in the street*."
Other actors, sine-- the days of Maenad K.-.ui
may, perhaps, have been tempted l.y the same
theatrical opportunity; and yet only a few of them
have been fitted fully to improve lt hy th(. vocif?
erous utterance of hysterical passion." The elder

and scholarship have thus been lavished upon its
Illustration. The mont picturesque and resplendent
of them all seems to have bt-.n th. rider W-illtirk
an actor with whom display was ever the first
consideration, as lt had been with Elliston, on
whom his style was founded. Hy Wallack the Jew?

tency of intellect: but. mingled with those ele?
ments, penetrating them, Interfusing them and

between specious kindness and open malice is
shown by him with admirable dexterity; and there
is a moment in thc Trial scene when the cold
steady, baleful, teirtfcle look which thc Jew fixed
upon the Merchant concentrates the whole horri?

The opening of Ihe Garden Theatre List night,
under the management of A. M. Palmer, was sig.
nallzed by the re-entrance of Edward S. Williu-il,
who came forward In "The Professor's I?ove

brilliant assembly. The return of Mr. Willard re?

manner essentially li^ht and fre<\ -with the vigor
of a bright mind; with deep tenderness of f? cling;
with exquisite delicacy of taste; with fl keen sense
of character, piquant humor, grace of style and
frequent dramatic efTect. Nothing will ever seem
inappropriate on the stage that comes accredited
with virtues like those; and all the more welcome
is that sweet, pure, refined an.l sparkling drama

of the highest order, and whose fine equipment
and ample experience places him In the front rank

Mr. Willard's most conspicuous stag'- triumphs. In
an earlier time, were gained in characters that are
evil and sinister, lt ls remarkable of him. how?

degree, the power of impersonation. In "The Pro?

is quaint, genial, end lovable The background of
the story ls the rich, sweet, tranquil home life of
England. The Professor, whos- mind for many

Thc bouse looked much larger thin lt used tn
befoie lt was burned and r.-stor.sl. Opening the
space under the cn les of boxes Wiul doubtless the
chief cause- In th.s way. of .ours?, the house not
..nlv looked but naturally was lar.,er. There was
the'new but orchestra circle, with aoma of the best
seats In the house in |t. and there nus H wide apace
for standlng-roorn behind md ,;|| ground The
crowd of people "tending last night was something
unprecedented nt the Metropolitan, tn fart if such
a crotfd 11.td ever tried to gland th. r- before, lt
would hare had to do it somewhere outside the

more people standing than thc house would eve
aCCOmmodate before Those wh., remember the
little pens that used to rle 11k the orchestra floor
know that lt was i? grim Joke motor* ,? ?,,?.;. K ?r the
house accommodattag any at nil.
The circle* themselves looked larger too than
they did before. This must have baan ,,n opt'lral Il?
lusion, of course. OT else the old appearance wes nn
optical Illusion, "be change was due to the lighter
colors of thc decorations, rhe trholl house lookid

I and the balcony the people In the last rows of seats
j at the side found that they could see better bv
standing up. (if course that was not quite as it
j should be, but in past vears they were lucky If
they could find anv way st all to see. If any ad
i verse criticism were to be made on the general ap?
pearance of the house, lt would be thst there was a
; little too much glare of electric light and a little
, too much polished brass to reproduce it with me?
tallic reflections, if all this is softened and mel?
lowed a little as time goes on the opera house will
The feeling of freshness everywhere was all but
j oppressive. Down In the corridors the smells of
; roses and pa|nt w<irp m|X.(j. That of the paint
* bl not last long, and later roses can be better
, enjoyed. The odor of flowers last night came
! [rom those that were sent to the artists, two big
baskets of roses for Miss Karn'-", wreaths of myrtle
. for .Jean and Edouard de Iteszke, and a laure;
! wreath for Jean and a quantity of big and beauti
' lui. but less notable, bouquets.
The au ilene,, was as gratifying a part of the
whole display as any other. It wo* a fine sight
from any point near the end of the dress circle or
balcony, whence almost all of lt could be seen at
once. The expanse of the orchestra BOOT wa.i
greater than of old. as has been explained, the,
seats were all Ailed, and then there were IBS
crowd" standing behind them. Above them was
the parterre circle, which wns always the place
for th.- display of gowns and the bright color of
the and linc-.
This was so still and the most of the real
brilliancy of the great gathering was found here.
Bul lt was well continued In a part of thc text
circle, called the grand tl"r. At the bael, of this
nineteen boxes corresponded with the stockholders'
boxes lielow. There are more Isixea, but smaller,
"n the side at the right, and all of there too were
lilied with people who quite did their share toward
making thc circle attractive Over opposite was
the one large box of the Vandenrllle Club, and
h-re lhere were no bright colors, only black anil
while, for the liox held none but men. I'p higher
were the dress-circle and balcony, also crowded,
and then th" area of faces In thc balcony stretched
b.ick an.l back, clean across Broadway, BS lt
scmed. though perhaps this was another optical
Illusion. Altogether lt ls faint praise to say that lt
was one of the llnest audiences ever seen In a New
York theatre. KverytMxly who had anything to do
with the restoration of the opera house and its re?
opening-, ls to be congratulated on tile success of
? happy and brilliant occassloi-.
