lated by Mr. Charles Swickard. This play ex
hibits :ice>ntious passions, suggests lewd conduct.
and is top-heavy with loose, degenerate theories
es t.-> morality. The persons chiefly implicated in
this rubbish are a man named George- Van Harter.
and a woman named Marie George la betrothed
tn Marie's foster-sister Gertrude, but. on the night
before the day appointed for his marriage, he dis

jnan adJresßes his loity mind 10 the inter
estintt question whether George ought to we<l
Marie, whom he has debauched, or ought to keep
his promise to marry her sister. The decision is
that he ought to keep his promise: and this he does.
The relevancy of the title is explained by an Intl
ication,—conveyed In a flux of verbose nonsense
tr George,— that the flre of St. John is a heathenish
caxr.aJism that breaks out once a year, on which
occasion, it appears, the Inhabitants of Mr. auder

Miss O'Neil displayed the same crudity that was

and considerable force; but she lacks repose, her
continual movements are motiveless, her elocu
tion, except in level speaking, la bad. and her no
tion of acting is to alternate between an aspect of
ir.ter.se, wild-eyed self-repression and a verbal ex

no rational woman could sympathize, is wooden,

family affairs. Four long acts are occupied with
■ matter that might be communicated fully in a
tpn-n:i:iuf.^ scene. George would prefer Marie
rather than Gertrude, tout, though Marie loves
him. he docs not declare his preference,
because Mari=> is a focndling and because his stern
tinci*-. Gertrude's father, would be furious. George.

of the night, to wait for a railway train, and after

would be difficult to say where the indelicacy

A Revival of "La Gioconda."
A promise, repeatedly made. by the management
I of the Metropolitan Opera House within the last
few years, was redeemed last night, when Ponchl
/ will's opera, "La Gioconda." which had been one of
j the bright features of th» first season of opera at
I the Metropolitan twenty-one years ago, was brill
\ iantly performed, It was a most creditable achieve-
I ment on the part f Mr. Conried to come forward
| with a work of such large dimensions in trie second
I week of hid season, but amazement Is considerably
| modined by the fact that preparatory work was done
j on it last year and j hat all the stage furniture 1 was
j prepared for Mr. Gr.-u two y>ars ago, when it was
expected that Mme. Ternlna would appear In the
titular character. It was only to the people with
whom the Metropolitan performances sum up opera,
that "La Gioconda" was either a novelty or
an old memory. The Castle Square company per
formed it in Its manner in March, 1893. at the
American Theatre, nnd again in October. 1901. at
the Broadway, and there is a haunting recollection
of some doings on the stage nf the Grand Opera
House which bore more or less of a resemblance
to Ponchiellfs opera. In 1593 Moreover, all that is
best in its music has been played and mine over
and over again in local concert rooms since the
opera had its first production at the Metropolitan
Opera House on December 20, ISS3, with Mmes.
NTISSOn, Fursch-Madi and Scalchi, and Messrs.
Stagno, Del Puente and Novara in the cast, and
Signor Vianesi in the conductor's chair. It is not
necessary to Institute comparisons between that cast
and the cast of last night; let the younger genera
tion of operagoers who are prone to think that
music began when they appeared upon the scene
ask their elders what the singers of a score of
y-ars ago were like. It Is worthy of mention, how
ever, as a hint of what may legitimately be ex
pected in view of the general excellence of Mr.
Conried'i representation, that "La Gioconda" scored
a most emphatic success in the first season, and
that as a spectacle, enlivened by music, which asks
little in the way of culture for its appreciation. It Is
a welcome companion piece to "Alda." For the
serious minded lovers of open who remembered It
of old. and have sine*' taken up the works of Pon
chlelli's pupils and successors, Mascagni, Leonca
vallo and Puccini, into their consciousness, it had a
special value because of .t.» place in operatic devel
The score of. "La Gioconda" is full of ingeniously
applied harmonica! and orchestral devices, but they
are all such as were learned from his great prede
cessor. Verdi. As ■ matter of fact. Ponchielll,
though he has disclosed himself as the father of
the young Italian school, which seems already to
have exhausted itself, was less original than Bolto,
who has distinguished himself above all the rout
of Verdi's followers, by continence and self-criti
cism Now, after the two decades which have
elapsed since he made himself known here, and
within which we have seen the rife (and also the
considerable fall) of such imitators as Mascagni.
Leoncavallo and their superior. Puccini, we are more
able to see than we were a si ire of years ago how
I much he and all the rest of his tribe owe to Verdi,
and, also, how much ruder and less attentive to real
beauty they were "La Gioconda" will this season
be paired In careless popular thought with "Alda
and win, in all probability, exceed It in popularity,
but that fact will not shake the foundations cf
Verdi's opera. It will exhaust Its new lease of life
and then be forgotten, while "Alda" will outlive it
and al! Its offspring, which, while they ought to be
proud of their ancestry, have not yet awakened a
hope of posterity.
What is admirable to the popular Appreciation
of to-day is th? hot vigor of the drama and the
quick co-operation of music in Its climacteric mo
ments. This co-operation is most obvious In the
employment of the device or contrast, which domi
nates the work and Mans to have been the feat
ure which has been most itlvely seised upon by
Ponchielll's pupils. It marks every climax in the
opera, and becomes almost tiresome in its reitera
tion. In the first act the .blin.l woman's prayer
is set against a background composed of a gam
bling chorus and the wild whirl of the furlano,
which ends abruptly with organ peals and a pious
canticle — an effect repeated since In "Cavalleria
Rustlcana" and "Tosca." In the second act, in
the twinkling of an eye, Gioconda is transformed
from a murderous devil Into a protecting saint;
in the third Laura's accents of m rta! woe com-
I mingle with the sounds of a seranade in the dis-
I tance, and the disclosure of a supposed murder
Is made at the climax of a ball; in the fourth the
calls of passing gondoliers break in upon Olo
conda's soliloquies, which have for their 1 " subject
suicide, murder and self-sacrifice. The device Is
of coarse tissue, but it is of the opera operatic,
and it is now more familiar than it was when
first disclosed to the patrons of the Metro]
Opera House twenty-one years ago.
If 11 were necessary one might find the sour o'
this device of contrast in the literature to which
Verdi directed attention when he turned his thoughts
to Victor Hugo and composed "Ernani" and
"Rigoletto It may be said aga.l"., as was said in
this place when "La Gioconda" came in for its
first review, that Hugo was the prtn of those
novelists and dramatists who utilize glaring con
trasts and unnatural contradictions to give plquancy
to their creations and compel sympathy for mon
ster" by uniting monumental wickedness with the
most amiable of moral qualities The story of "La
Gloconda" is drawii essentially from "Angelo,
Tyrane Ue Padoue." In transforming this tragedy
into an opera the librettist removed the scene
from Padua .i Venice, changed a. wealthy actress
Into a poor street singer and made the blind
mother, who Is barely mentioned In the French
tragedy. Into a prominent and very moving char
acter. There can be no question that BoTto was
highly successful in remodelling the tai^ for oper
atic purposes, but he has nor palliated Its moral
grossnesr *>r succeeded lr. inviting mir compassion

personages who In this <>p»'rn escape disaster
are a i air of lovers, wh - sufferings as de
pleted or Inferred cannot be sail to have refined
the fruilt out of their passion. We might infer
that once the attachment of Knro and t.aura was
pure and lovely; but all that we Bee of it Is
I flauntinelj criminal and doubly wicked The happl
i lifps of Enzo, who. tn elope with another man's

love for him Is so strong that she gh her life <

to be set down tn Justifying so many blotches and
blains. pimples and pustules on the face of human !
nature. Laura's treachery is to Gioconda as well ■
as to her husband, an.l has no redeeming trait, j
In fact, the blind womun is the only character in I
the play who has moral health, and she seems to
have been brought ir-to the piny only that her |

Nowhere does she illustrate the spirit of b!lthene?s j
which Is put forth by her name; and only once i
does she allude to it. From the moment of her j
entrance till her death she is filled with tortur- :

one of simple pity— a feeling that is never absent j
from tender hearts, no matter hew depraved the ;

But opera In the estate Illustrated by "La Gio
conda." scarcely justifies even an elementary moral
disquisition. Moreover, what Ponchielll provoked Is
■O much worse thnn what he himself did that his
oor.demnatlon can go no further than • fatorial
tires. It la in the operas of his tmpils and would-be |
Imitators, Ike Giordano. tea and others

and if its music is at times highly spiced, it Is at

has followed his librettist In aiming at contrast, at
