PUBLIC TASTE CALLS FOR THE SENSATIONAL JN OPERA
Reception of liLe Coqd'Or" Illustrates
the Difficulties That Confront , the
Impresario Effect of War on Music
By W. J. HENDERSON.
Till'. in.ilin.li.m 'it ntrasky-Korxnknv's "ho Con. d'Or" at tho Mrtro
politnu upcni llouso on Wiiliii'(ny evening Inst was one of the
im.-t InteiWliis Incidents of tlie current soium n of public perform
gnctf. attitude of tho audience was by no tneaira the least noteworthy
ft.ittirc of the evening. After tho fall of tho first curtain two women la
tbo row of parterre boxes' applauded, one of them with manifest enthusiasm,
tiio ntlior wllh amiable condeswnslou. The rest of the audience was very
m.lcralc In Its raptures. The claque wife Indusirlous, but Ineffectual.
After the second act, which was counted on to awaken some demonstra
tion, the boxes were apathetic anil the orchestra stalls but little better.
The cinque redoubled Its efforts and this time, with better success. It Is a
fact well rccojmlr.cd by old opernpoers that the appearance of Mnscrs lo- ,
fore tho curtain stimulates enthusiasm. Recalls tioBct recalls. So It was '
on Wednesday ntsht. After the singers had come forward to bow their '
tcknowlcdgincnts tho third or fourth lime there was far more applause'
thiui that which had brought them out the first time. j
But nothing done by an opera audience, except Its solm: home, can .
to regarded ns final- Whether "i.nj Coi d'Or" Is to be a popular sueeess
or not cannot bo gathered from the dull speculation with which tired society's
syes observed Its first ierformance. It may prove to be much more pleas-.
Ing to the next subscription audience to vhtch It 1 offered. Hut Tin: Sun's )
rKonler of musical doings Ones not hope for a !ermnnctit success for It.
Wednesday evening's audience was I pllrh but llltle in the tourso of the.
fir belter pleased by the performance
cf "Cavallcrla Hustlcana," which pre
coded the fantastic pantomime opera.
Occasion has been taken here to make
ome observations on the present stale'
ef public taste In operatic perform
ance, a state which has been nurtured
tr the Metropolitan Opera House. Let
us for the moment revert to It.
SniMtlntt Is Drniandnt.
What people desire tn opera rhould
ln fjnlto evident to those who keep
their cjes and ears open. In this par
ticular period there Is little or no room
for any art whoso salient character
istic Is simplicity. Refinement and
rtrose are not welcomed. Sensational
tflsolay of ono sort or another Is de
aended every moment. The palate of
the public can enjoy no plain food.
There must be seaonlnK sharp enough
to Ming the jaded sense.
What, then, results? An nlmost
total absence of sustained beauty of
tone among singers. When they offer
It 'liey are condemned. Mr. Muratore
mn? ynu.it at the Lexington Theatre
tihcn the Chit-ago company was there
rati men were heard to declare that he
ad not sufficient voice for the part.
Why? Beraure ho laid as'.do tho vo
ciferous delivery which he employed In
"Carmen" and strove to sing Gounod's
music after the manner approved nt
th Grand Opera of Paris. When he
almost destroyed tho last two scenes
of "Manon" by stentorian bawling he
was applauded to tho echo.
1.10 irenormancf 01 v.vauna ttus- .
tlcana" at the Metropolitan on Wednes-
!ay evenlnp was an exhibition of
ncrfamlng not to be. outdone any
where. Florence Oaston, who has a
beautiful voice and plenty of tempera
men and who has no need to exag
Krate nnythlne, sane persistently nt
th top of her power till In two or ,
'hrw phrases she broke her tone by ,
hr forcing:. Mr. Usraro hoisted i s I
riulders. s ood on tiptoe, drew In h a
t ? an:Z?UeiUP, h VJ .'T l,U
ody visibly shoo'.t with the violence
tho efforts he made In drlvlntr out
'ilih tones.
That s what the mass of present
f.ty ooeragoors love. When It Is not
o t had. then they turn to colora
s lr,glng. for which they have not
h lightest use unless It ts of the
ae brilliant and difficult type. Tou
oainct Imagine any operxroer grivlntr
fire mlnutfs of his priceless attention
o the kind of florid song: heard In
Hamlet's "Messiah."
Public Taste TVhlmalral.
TMj appetite) for sensationalism
f'tns with feeding:. The cure Is not
n,"V Kjven to the patient. It ls hard
to l-diice a gourmand to abandon his
rl'cs and saucts. Yet there ls only
ore Tay to lead people back to a taste
for nohlp. pure beauty In art, and
thai is tn refuse to Ktve them any
'hl.ig els. If an opera house were
e.n Oucatlonal lnstltotlon, as It some
i!n:fs pnifesses to be. It would do Just
'hi- liui since In these proud temples

picture theatre) we can hardly expect
a.n impresario to confront himself
night after nlht with rows of empty
teaK
Mr Gattl-Casatza does from time to
tla-.e invito his public to the serious
consideration of something which haa
not or)y novelty of outward appear
ance but seriousness of artistic pur
po. Ho has done It so often that he
might bo esteemed almost a benefac
tor. In producing "Le Coq d'Or" he
ra c:ir-n again summoned his patrons
to a strange feast. He has had the
courage to demand of them Imaglna
'lon and a keen sense of humor. He
a" requested them to smile nt a

METROPOLITAN OPERA HOUSE.
When. "IVAmore del Tre R" was first !
performed at the Metropolitan Opera i
House four seasons ago it was hailed by
many musical ouserei ai the most In-1
teresting operatic wort that had come
out of Italy since "Madama Butterfly.
Its success wa. due to the very effective
libretto, originally a tragedy by the Ital
ian poet Sem Benelll (who has recently
been wounded at the Italian front but
who Is now In a fair way to recovery) ,
to the sincere, spontaneous, fluent score
provided by the composer, Italo Monte
mezzl, and to what was generally con
ceded to be a very admirable cast.
Next Thursday evening General Man
ager Gattl-Casazza will revive tho work
with two Important changes In tho dls-1
trlbutlon of parts. Mr. Caruso for tho
first time will sing the role of A tiro, who
In the play represents tho pure Italian
type the representative of the J.atln j
raoo at the perlou or me action of tlie
drama, subjected to a barbarian Invader,
as Is northeastern Italy to-day. The
role of Flora, In which Kem Uenelll evi
dently alms at typifying Italy herseir,
will be sung for the first time here by an
Italian girl, Claudia Muzlo. She pleased
the Milan public In the part so much
that it Is aald her head was taken as a
model for the widely distributed pnstei
representing Italia with Her rorennger
on her Hps warning the publlo in the
words: "Taoete! Aliens II vostro si
lenzlo affretera la Vittorla!" (Not a
word 1 Even your silence will hasten
victory !)
Mr. Amato again will be seen as Afan-
rt'fo, the son of the barbarian invader
who has acceptea (.nrisuanuy ami
sought to win the affection of the sub
lect race by wedding Its Princess. The
old barbarian chief trcAlbarfo.a sort of
Theodorlc or Harbaro.ssa, who represents
the rude, cruel, pagan type that knows
no forgiveness, demanding blood for
blood, again will be Impersonated by Mr.
Dldur. Others In the cast will be Mmes.
Arden. Handera, Robeson and Tiffany
anil Messrs. Bada and Audlslo.
Maestro Moranzonl, whose rending of
the Booro already has been so favorably
commented upon elsewhere, will conduct
