„t Bidu Sayao Triumphs
By Sweet Singing
Substitutes for Gina Gigna
And Captivates Audience,
* By Innate Artistry.
By ALICE EVERSMAN.
BIDU SAYAO. Brazilian soprano of the Metropolitan Opera, scored a
veritable triumph last evening at Constitution Hall, where she sub
stituted at the last minute for Oina Gigna, who was prevented by
illness from fulfilling her engagement. Ordinarily it is a thankless
affair to take the place of another singer without benefit of much previous
announcement, but Mme. Sayao so quickly won the hearts of the audience
that there was nothing but satisfaction*;*
a *t the change. She literally came and
conquered, adding many new admirers
to those who already had heard her
In former appearances. Less than a
month ago she opened Mrs. Lawrence
Townsend's series at the Mayflower
Hotel, delighting those who heard her
then, and last evening she cemented
her success by her appeal to the larger
and more varied public which fre
quents Constitution Hall.
Not in many months has there been
, a recital in this famed hall so charm
ingly and unaffectedly presented.
Mme. Sayao had culled all the beauty
from the numbers she sang last eve
ning and made a gift of it to her
listeners. She carried them away on
the sweet tones of her voice to a
contemplation of loveliness, guiding
them to the finer points through her
Intelligent grasp of artistry. Her voice
is not a large one nor. in spite of its
clear coloratura character, a dazzlingly
brilliant one, but it has charm and
tenderness and enough of a point to
It to carry in the large hall. She
makes no effort to attain greater
volume, to be dramatic or to force out
the top notes of her range. She just
kings, sweetly, simply and artistically.
But therein lies a secret which only
k few artists know. By reason of her
Innate artistry, she flnds the proper
color for every phrase, the slight
change in intonation which stresses
the meaning of the text, The simplicity
is supreme art and the sweetness of
tone Intelligent understanding of the
vocation of song. There is complete
ease in the manner in which Mme.
Sayao delivers a measure, whether a
passage of agility or one of purely
lyric content, and it is a joy to note
the care with which the whole is un
raveled. In addition a charming stage
» presence is not one of the least of
Mme. Sayao's gifts.
Her program contained four arias, the
“Deh vieni non tardar” from Mozart's
•'The Marriage of Figaro,” the "Caro
home” from "Rigoletto,” the ‘‘Addio
del passato” from "La Traviata” and
the "Gavotte” from Massenet's "Ma
non." Among the songs programmed
Were, in the first group. Caccini's
"Amarilli,” Gluck's "Spiagge amate,"
Campra’s "Chanson du papillon.” fol
L lowed in the next group by Rossini's
•'La Fastorella,” Saint-Saens' "Le
Hossignol et la Rose" and Chopin's
•■Tristesse.”
Beginning, after the intermission,
with Koechlin’s “Si tu le veux,” she
gave three songs In English, Bishop's
“Love Has Eyes," Bartlett’s “A Dream”
and Lehmann’s “The Cuckoo.” Al
though these latter three were less In
keeping with the rest of the program,
she gave them distinction by her man
ner of singing. A final group included
Rimsky-Korsakov's “Aimant la rose
le rossignol,” Braga's “A Caslnha
Pequenina.” De Falla’s “Jota” and
Nin’s "Polo.’*
The enthusiasm of the audience
Brew from group to group and at the
end there was no move to leave until
Mme. Sayao gave several encores, in
cluding Ponces "Estrellita.” Paul
Ulanowsky was the capable accom
panist, although at times, in the arias,
for example, his extremely subdued
tone did not give sufficient background.
It allowed, however, the full beauty of
Mme. Sayao's voice to be heard and
assisted in the artistry of her interpre
tations. All in all, it was a memorable
concert when an artist, under the
stress of a last minute can, cast a
spell over her audience and left it
reluctant to realize that the program
was ended.

First off you discover that this

Next — it lists at lower figures,
even, than some sixes do, and
it's within a dollar or two a week
of several others.
But the story isn’t told in the
