CARUSO AS "SAMSON" FEATURES OPENING OF OPERA SEASON A : . C:. .ruuei luaii oiiigcra win uc l uunu ui Considerable Numbers in This Year's Programmes but Not Yet in Lead ing Parts La Forza del ' Destino to Be Sung Friday Night By W. J. HENDERSON. THE regular season of opera will begin at the Metropolitan Opera Houso to-morrow night, when Mr. Caruso will reuppear as the strong man of Israel. It docs appear that tho famous tenor has over adapted to his own personal caso that last appeal of Ss.mson: "Lot no dio with the Philistines," whereupon he brought down the houso. EvcTy ono knows' that tho Philistines dearly love opera and that they bestow no'jot or itom of their intelligence upon any other form of music. One also knows that their Ita or Toth (see ,KThe Sending of Dana Da") "and their Indra or their Apollo are found in Caruso, who in their opin ion inherited Jubars lyre, and plucks from it the songs of tne seven planets, songs without words, as sung by tho Egyptian priests centuries hefQre Aida was born. "Let mc die with the Philistines!" It is a fitting prayer for a happy ending. If Caruso waits till the last of them has sunk into the Ian of Lamia he will'(0, king) live forever. Meanwhile to-morrow evening In the old familiar way he will succumb to tho delirious charms of that dev astating siren Louise Homer amid the jeers of Giulio Setti's brazen throated chorus and the general satisfaction of those nmiablo people who have paid speculators $40 (latest quotation) each for orchestra stalls. It was perhaps a graceful idea on the part of Mr. Gatti-Casazza t open the season with an opera by tho dean of French 'composers, and als. it gave Mr. Caruso an opportunity to begin things in an effective role ir the midst of a comparatively inexpensiveast. But impresarios, as wc well know, never consider such trifles. Doubtless tho Neapolitan old guard, the carabinieri of the rail, wil' pipo a few gentlo plaints becauso "Aida" is not tho first opera. That is set down for Wednesday evening, when certain new members of the company will storm the Olympian heights of Metropolitan fame, am? hope to have their names blown through the world by long Egyptian trumpets in A flat and B natural (see score published by Ricordi). Thursday night provides a Donizetti Intermezzo, when Mmo. Ilempel, greatly Americanized by war and mar riage, will kiss the French flag In the "Daughter of the rteglment." 'Friday evening will be devoted to the rovlval of Verdi's "La Forza. del Destino." Repertories are seldom logical. If Chronological significance had been sought we should have had "La Forza dol Destino" set down for Wednesday and "Aida." for Friday, becauso it is one of the immediate predecessors of "Aida," having been produced in Pet rograd in 1862. It was made known to New Yorkers "by Max Maretzek and It had Its last previous hearings here at the Academy of Music In the latter part of the sci on of 1879-80. under the direction of Col. J. H.,Mapleson. There is a singu larly persistent tradition that there were no "star" casts in this town till Maurice Grau began to give them In the famous days of "Les Huguenots," -with Nordlca, Melba or Sembrlch, Mantel!!, the de Iteszkes, Plancon and Scottl or Maurel. As a matter of fact Col. Mapleson gave "Aida" -with Octavia Torrlani, AnnicLoulse Carey, Italo Campanlnl, I Maurel and Nanettl. And when he .brought forward "La Forza del Des tino" the cast was composed of great stars of that day who would have loecn stars In this except the soprano. Mine. Dotti, as she was known on the' stage (Mrs. Swift In private life), wai an Industrious singer of conventional attainments. The others were Miss Carey. Mr. Campanlnt. Mr. Galassl and Mr. Del I'uente, tho last named the ' only real satisfying toreador the present writer can recall. . "Ln. Forza del Destino" will give the essayists .full scopo for their powers of original and enlightening observa tion. In the Hrat place little or nothing has been written about it since Us Infancy. It slipped away Into obscu rity when "Alda" burst upon an en raptured world. It wan one of ' 'several opora.s composed ln a period of reaction ln Verdi's artistic career. "La Travlata" dates from 1S53, and for eighteen years after that Verdi produced no work of his first quality nor any that achieved a signal success. One writes perfunctorily the titles of "I Vespri SIcilani" (1855), "Simon Boc canegra" (1857), "Aroldo," n revision of an earlier work (1857): "Un Hallo ln Maschera" (1S!9). and "Don Carlos" (1867). "Un Ballo ln Maschera" has returned to the stage ln recent years owing principally to the brilliant vocal accomplishments of Messrs. Caruso and Amato. No sincere lover of dpera ' Is doubtful aa to Its position ln the scale o Verdi's creations. "La Forza del Destino" will not be discussed here In advance. Huchadls- f curslon might easily come to lean too heavily on' the record" of a bygone period when musical judgments reatedj upon lounaauuns ainerent irom tnose occupied now. It may not bo ncccs jrary to enter Into any profound exam ination of the work after Its disclosure on Friday night. The story of Verdi's career lndicatea that the operas com posed in the Interval between "La Travlata,' a work In tho old style, beautiful and expressive within the limits of, that 'planner, and "Alda." a magnificent plungo Into the ocean of modern tone color, u splendid outburst ofv.new found dramatic eloquence, were the products of a mind which wa' hoTerlng on the verge of new visions while yet under tho spell of alio pld. Its outlook was clouded, and when the clarifying process had com puted itself the grand old man of Italy in all the glory of his renewed otfength slrodo forth Into tho now day. One thing may be said without hes itation, namely, that anything made yt' Verdi is worthy of our most serious consideration. Ills poorest scores havo comethtng good In them. He was al ways clever If not always Inventive and Jn the days when ho believed that the methods and traditions of tho Nea politan school, founded by Aiessandro Scarlatti, wero equal to tho growing demands of tho lyric drama ho had fa cility, nervous energy and very often melodic inspiration of a glowing kind. "Wo shall see how much of theso are in tho score of "La Forza del Destino. Hrnnwhl!n tli. mnWIt., , , ui'ci.i- oer will scrutlnlEO this score with but ono end in view, to determine whether It furnishes a field favorable to. exercise of Mr. Caruso's voice. If It does, Its restoration to tho reper tory of tho living lyric drama is its aurcd until Samson goes down with the Philistines. llany interesting Incidents may ho Mtpicted in tho coming opcrn season, jfe-vy operas hy unknown American composer, for example, will invito hopes and suggest fears. Out what a ft ... . v.r:11 D r?, A : delightful surprise It would be If on of these little operas turned out to be the creation of a man who had somt conception of the genltis of the English language as a lyric medium. It is amazing to some dense minds, like that of The Sun's musical chron icler, that the tongue in which Keats wrote the lines about a Grecian urn, Tennyson the songa in "The Princess" and Swinburne the choruses ln "At alanta In Calydon" (not to men tion any others) should be found wanting in musical quality. Eng lish Is unslngable, declare the wise ones. Curious that stupid old Handel did not discover that Important fact. And all those rldlcu lous old fossils, the composers of the ancient English airs so often heard at song recitals "Sally in Our Ally, "Nymphs and Shepherds," "The Lass with the Delicate Air" and the rest they did not know It either. But you say you are talking not about the music, but about the libretto, Well, verily, it Is true that an opera consists of libretto and music, and some one must make a book of good, poetic, singable English before a com poser can make real music for it. Let us hope that expectations will be real ized and that we shall not have to re solve ourselvea Into an audience of Touchstones, eacb, murmuring, "Well, it Is a poor thing, but our own." There are numerous American sing ers now In the company. The ancient complaint that no American singer could get an engagement at the Metro politan no longer has any foundation. The portraits of two who are to ap pear ln the course of the first week of the season are given herewith. Others will bo published from time to time, nnd meanwhile some record will be made of their achievements. The high patroness of the American colony In the Metropolitan company Is Mme. Homer, whose husband is one of the downtrodden American composers with songs on half a hundred recital programmes. Mrs. Homer may pres ently have a rival ln tho person of Louise Homer No. 2, her daughter, who Is also n singer with promise of distinction. But with Tlosa Poncelle, Alice Gen tle (formerly with the unquenchable Hammersteln), Margaret Romaine, Mary Melllsh, Mary Ellis, Ttoa Eaton and Carlo Hackett an American tenor there Is a pretty promising list of young American fingers. Meanwhile the experienced observer of Metro politan affairs may be permitted to wait till he finds one of the inexperi enced nmong these young Americans basking In the glory of a principal role. That will probably not happen very soon, because the Metropolitan Is not a kindergarten. METROPOLITAN OPERA HOUSE.
