Something too was rhe tribute. paid to the unexpectedly picturesque. and communicative) delineation of the. tratrlc hero by Adamo Dldur.

Thn opera, na Im already been fet ,'"Tth !n Oils nowepaper, follows Pou.n ktn'n play closely and In (tome, sce.nea even retain th original words. It is a tory taken from the dark and bloomy history of Russia In the early seventeenth century, and It adheres faithfully to the truth, as far as that Is vnown. Tfii incidents added to tho story ar not uch as to alter Its ve raclty. but rather to brln? out the char acter of Russian life and th pecullarl- of the people. flrrl ha.s reached the throne through od.

Shakespeare's thane con. , queretl horror, but linris. n wreck of i conscience, Minnot live to meet his spectre face to fac. Despite. Its fmi;mentary character the story I.s one of genuine trajrli power. Boris Is a terrible flKiire and the relent, less approach of the audacious monk who has assumed the personality of tho dead Is shown with a subtle and mys terious force. It Is In the musical treat ment of these two Ideas that Mous- aorgsky has attained his preatest level , of art. He has found for the utterance of the tortured t'zar accents of heart rendlnc mlserj-. profound Bloom, awful despair. The character stands forth i rlear and convincinp. one of the sharply I and fully sketched portrait? In the op eratic pallery. It was a stroke of penlus and an act of darinp to pive this role to a boss "olce, but to what other could such a rolo have been plven with any hope ofti1M.p wer no other reasonsi to entltlo absolute dramatic Justification" The I perfect foil Is found by maklnp the fale fflmffri a tenor of the opera, and thus enahllnp the spirit of stupendous au dacity to proclaim Itself In the clarion tones of the hlph voice. In all open there is no more unrrrlnp choice of voices than that of these-two. The scoro as a whole offers an em barrassment of material for comment. but It Is not essential that more than two or three chief features bo discussed at this lime. .Mnaln Perfeetlr Flla the Them. In the first place the musical subject matter Is thoroughly Russian. The principal themes are either actual Rus sian melodies or melodies fashioned by the composer In the national Idiom. All of them are aptly chosen or made. They embody the moods and pictures of the drama with eloquence. They are woven topether in a score of marvellous rich ness and power. Tho voices utter for the most part arioso which Is orlplnal ' and characteristic. One would like to i hear it with the Russian text, tn which It must bo iinlfed with splendid skill. Its lack of consanpulnlty to the Italian tongue, used In the performance, oh trudeiM Itself continually. But Its fitness for tho drama Is perfect, nnd the hlpher flights of the arioso reach melodlo beauty of njmisual nobility. The chorus plays n leading role In this musical drama. The pictures of the peiplo nro lifelike. The melancholy, thn despair, tho rude resolution and re volt of soul and the beaten helplessness are all n part of th action of tho play, und the preat choral scene In wJilch the composer baa developed tho moods of his masses are ns potent nj? hla pub lication of the aponles of linris. The orchestra has place In the de notement of the emotions of the work quite equal to that of rhn voices. While this Is not a Hcoro of representative themes, It Is far from belnp without splendidly representative music. All the barbarism of thn aroused Russians clamors through rome of the raucous pages of 'orchestration, iagcs In which grandly conceived combinations nf In striiments add color to nipped and al most brutal successions of elemental dissonances. It Is known that Rlmsky-Ivorsakov edited this score and that we owe him equivocal thnnkn for smoothlnp down Homo of the "roupll" places. If any of the places edited out of tho score pos M'ssctl the grand barbarous ttplendor of those remaining it is n preat pity that tho well meanlnp schoolmaster was permitted to be abroad In Hie land. Ilenutlfiil If llnrlmrle .Melortr. Ono follows the progress of tho opera with unceasliip admiration for tho use ttf musical resource.

The tremendous alternation of iirchewtriil chords Imitative of tho Kremlin bells In tho openlup of the third sconu Is ono of the tnlphty In atrumental devices of the work. It U Last Nights Russian Opera AJ.m PiJur Ct.r Hot is In this scene too that the composer builds up a magnificent Untile upon a Hun-dan theme which appears also In a quartet of lteethovcn. The Inn scene begin with a Russian souk, sunc by the htwteJ-s. and the bar liAric ilrlnkltiu siint? nf thn rt'tieiradc mink U i, bill,. nuHiemlece In lis ex- prelum of the bestiality of tho crea- j ture.

The duet !etwcen her and the tm, f,ip0 Mmitri will without doubt be for the peneral public the hip scene of the ora. ApaJn In the forest scene the com- 10ser wields his choral forces with Im mense ease and cert.ilnt.v and pets a muslcAl mood (ilcture of sure power The death scene Is written with a ill rectnes, an assured eae in the use of matTlalJ, nnd a keen sense of dramatic fitness which would be sufficient ilf Monssortrskv to immediate r.-copnltlon as a master In fine there need h? no hesitation in pronounctnp "Rorls Godounov" the product of a peulal mind, freely cre.it- ns. f)r popip m,t 0f their own mater lali a lyric drama of piand proportions. It 1 a pity that our peneral public does not know Russia better Half an hour In tho prim chambers of the old Kremlin palace, especially that In whose dark corner Ivan th Terrible and later Na poleon watchiil their minions, would do inoro to Illumine the pace of "R-irls (Jndotinov" than a volume of descrip tive comment. ntrinr anil lttinnae Milne. The opera has been splendidly mounted at the Metropolitan. The scenes have character and correct local color. The chamber In the last act Is especially faithful In its reproduction of the architecture nnd decorations of the Kremlin palace. The costumes are rx cellent and the mlse en .scene has been elaborated with that knowledge and care which mark all the work of Julius Speck Tim snlenrlld sinking of the Chorus re Meets much credit on the chorus mister. I Glullo Settl. The orchestra played well ( indeed and thn whole. Interpretation of j the work was made ital and beautiful by the sympathetic puldance and line Intelligence of Arturo Toscanlnl, who directed It. Adamo Oldur's Impersonation of Horia will raise him to a new position In the public cteem. It showed thought, study, temperament nnd much real drnmatle power. Hut of this there will be oppor tunity to speak again. At present it re mains only to make note of the fact, an Important one, that In 1'aul Althouse, a young American tenor In his first sea son on the stage, the Metroplollnn has made a valuable acquisition His Im personation of the false )im(frl showed much beauty of voice, pood theatrical Instincts and natural vigor.
