In "Sari" Forrest.
Just why musical scores should sometimes be
so excellent nnd tho librettos so commonsur
atcly Inadequate, It not Inane, Is ono of tho
mysteries ot musical comedy. It has become
customary for us In this country to accept
librettos with hardly a thread of plot, tho flim
siest oxcuso of a story nnd most threadbare
wit. In Franco It Is different, and, If we shall
develop our tastes for entertainment, It must
bo different hero. Superlatively excollent mu
sical scores havo repeatedly failed because of
tho dull-gray lucubrations of professional book
writers, and it would seem theatrical producers
would learn a lesson.
Ono of Victor Herbert's most entrancing
operettas, "Algeria," fallod to mako the hit
tho musical score deserved becauso of the
book. Thero aro sevoral new productions play
ing now whoso future sways dubiously In tho
scales of popular approval, and their probable
failure will be due entirely to execrable books.
So ongaglng, so altogether delightful, a Victor
Herbert's music in "The Debutante" that one
cannot but conjuro the richness of the possi
bilities were Mr. Herbert to havo as a librettist
some one with the fortuity of Invention, Imag
ination, Incisive wit, lyrical felicity and tech
nical skill of many of tho Gallia writers. Now
the French people would not possibly stand for
tho sort of thing perpetrated on composers and
tho public In some of the recent works of the
Smith brothers. In fact, tho French books
which have been adapted for American produc
tion by tho aforesaid brothers have been so
emasculated and dovltallzed that they havo lost
their native excellence.
When "The Lilac Domino" opened recently
In New York critics were unanimous In their
praise of the music of Cuvlller. and as equally
agreed on the flat and dreary quality of the
libretto as transposed by the Smiths.
In Mr. Henry Blossom, who wrote the book
of "The Only Girl," which Just opened In Now
York, Mr. Herbert has a librettist of genulni
ability. Wo recall, too, the admirable worl:
done by C. M. S. MacLellan In "The Pink
Lady" and "Oh, Oh. Delphlne." Mr. Caryll.
whoso latest work, "Papa's Darling," Inevit
ably suffers because of Its book, was fortunate
in that earlier combination. David Stevens,
who wrote "The Madcap Duchess," should
again be heard from, and deserves encourage
ment. But why Is It the majority of books are so
consciously bad? A certain theatrical asso
ciate declared some time ago, confidentially,
that producers would not read original books
by unknown authors, being content with the
established manufacturers ot stereotyped libret
tos. We hope this Is not so. If It Is, however,
