Sings Carmen at Century Theater 'Marta' Also Heard, With Miss Lucchese in t he Lead ing Role. Hj- W. J. IIKVDKIltoV. The San 'Carlo Grand Opera Company gave two performance# at the Century Theater yesterday. In the afternoon the i opera was "Marta." in which Miss Jose Pjrfne Lucchese. who had sung Oiltta the ^/previous evening, a as the Laily Hen rietta. Miss Anita KUnova sang Sanew. Romeo Bosaci Lionel and Mario Vaila I'lvnkott. An audience of considerable size rewarded their efforts with much applause. In tlie evening "Carmen" was given In two language s. Miss Dorothy Jardon. who had the name part, clung tenacious ly to the French text, but the others em ployed their familiar Italian. Linguistic differences did not in any way affect tha fate of Don Jose, impersonated by Ama dor Famadas. He went to destruction Just as completely as if he had conversed with Carmen in the tongue of Paris. However, it may be said of him that he made his fate believable. Miss Jardon w^s a very dark and sinister looking Carmen. and she sang the music in somber, gloomy ar.d some times depressing tones. Nevertheless and received much enthusiastic applause. Miss Charlebols, who sang Mtofieta, dis- 1 played a pretty soprano voice and a1 decidedly ingenue manner. She wgs an j excellent foil to the vampire Carmen. I Joseph ltoyer, one of the old reliable! members of the San Carlo organization, was the Rudolf Valentino of the eve-1 ning, namely, tho Toreador. He was' acclaimed for his earnest effort to con-! quer the popular song in tho second act. The setting of the opera was commend able and the chorus sang well. Carlo Pcronl conducted.

MA UGHAM'S 4EAST OF SUEZ' MELODRAMA AT ITS BEST Play With Little Japanese Half Caste as Heroine Easily Is the Most Engrossing Play of the New Season. By 1,1 Willi NCK BEAM Kit. No other figure iti the life of the Orient seem* to captivate the writers of Western fiction so much as the Eura sian. is beginning to dominate their stories about the East. The little Japanese half caste, Yae Smith. In that shoddy bit of propaganda "Kimono" is its most picturesque figur?. W. Somerset Maugham has made an Eurasian girl the heroine of "East of Suez," which A. it. Woods gave lupt night at the Eltinge. Evidently no other question seemed to hts practiced eye to offer so much material for the stage. She is a provocative creature with the hand of her own people turned against her and those allied through her white blood, equally contemptuous. The traditions of two contrasted civilizations war in her heart for master}', war more over witii the sense of injustice that makes the half breed, through no fault of hers, an outcast. Here, <>f course, is a heroine of melo drama to the mind of any playwright. Along one line East and West will never meet?and that is the Eurasian. So in spite of the conventional English edu cation which her father provided, the girl In "East of Suez" sinks the minute she steps foot in China to the level of her mother, who serves her obsequi ously us a nurse or Amah with tho blood tie kept a secret between them. What does Mr. Maughatn prepare for his heroine on her own hMth? All that Is possible for the Eurasian. She falls into the hands of a rich Chg^uman to whom her status Is a mat ter of indifference so long as her Eng lish beauty Is his. Then there are her English husband and his friend whom she has for a long time loved. It is her reactions to these three that supply Mr. Maugham with the material for his five scenes. Ilia Ally in the Matter. Always the Chinese suitor has his allj ) in the mother, who looks to him for more than the other two can give. It . Is he who stages the little riot In the street that the English husband may come out to quell. But the wrong man ( gets tlie knock on the head meant for him. It is the lover who is accidentally wounded and must stop in the com pound until she has nursed hint well of the wounds intended for her husband. He is away on a mission connected with his business duties*. So the Eurasian nurses her English lover with only the Chinaman lingering about to work in the end his Oriental revenge. He inflames the woman with stories of the lover's unfaithfulness until the let ters he has written are sent to her hus band as proof of his friend's treachery. The Englishman kills himself rather than face the disgrace of this disloyalty to his friend. Then in a somewhat fanciful mood quite at variance with the rest of the play, which is frankly melodramatic, the spirit of her Chinese ancestor Is sup posed to descend on the woman, who sits stiffly in the unimpassioned manner of the Orient looking straight ahead of her and listens without emotion to the knock ing of her husband on the door of their temple. In the Mnln Engrossing. Such is Mr. Maugham's melodrama. In the main engrossing, highly colored with some suggestion of the life of the Orient and above all with the glowing acting of Miss Florence Reed to Impim vitality to the long scenes. Miss Reed nia le a doubly alluring siren with the blood of the East and West in her palplta'.in, veins. She moved with feline eloquence and purred with a passion that was scarcely to be suppressed to the limits of decorous drama. Then her volte alternated Its sensuous intensity with the haunting suggestion of Eddie Foy itnitatluK Etliel Barrymore in a phono graph. John Hallidny played with some re sponsive flame the unwilling lover and Leonard Mudie indicated graphically the blind affection of the deluded hus band. Miss Catherine Proctor was in telligent in the role of the mother dis guised as a servant, but the sinister note was lacking that might, have added force to her deviltry. Ill the case of Howard Lang, who read with his usual sonorous tone and dis tinct utteran.o. the character of the pursuing Chinaman might have been more strongly emphasized. Youth was personally present in Geof frey Kerr and Gypsy O'Brien. ' East of Suez," although it contains but little of Maugham's hest. is easily the most engrossing play of tho sea son. it is melodiama at Ms best. 56 SUITS OF CLOTHES CAUSE MAN'S ARREST Former Express Driver Cot $20,000 Loot, Is Charge.

In the projection room of the Candler Building yesterday Technicolor, inc., gave a private showing of a coiored mottoi% picture which was adjudged by those present to bo one of tho finest so far developed. William Travers Jerome, vice-president and principal or ganizer of the company, explained that fhe picture had been put together with out any particular care as to continuity, that the scenes had been developed at various times and not carefully matched and tha' the five reels had become scratched through frequent private ex hibitions. With these allowances made the film, in the Judgment of spectators, was one of the most remarkable ever exhioited here. The figures had clearer outlines than is customary with color films. The leafy backgrounds, which in most of the coiored movies so far shown have been hazy, were sharply defined. There were none of the color fringes observ able in other tinted films. Where the film was clear, the firm color blending in natural tints seemed perfect. The green and red flashes that sometimes develop in rapid motion of figures on color films hitherto shown were lacking. When a girl moved a I bolt of colored silk across the range of vi6ion it did not hlur. , None of the faces appeared to hava artificial makeup on them, though pro AMUSEMENTS.

The pic ture. which was without subtitles for the present, was tentatively called "The Story of the Sea," was produced for the company by Joseph M. Schenck In Hol lywood. Kenneth Harlan and Miss Wong, a Japanese artist, played the leading role in the simple story, which resembled that of "Madame Butterfly." The Japanese scenes lent themselves particularly well to such treatment, and whenever flowers were pictured their luscious tints aroused applause. The reds were particlarly rich. Most of the scenes were taken out doors, and the sunshine brought out the volois in almost a golden glow. The scenes taken In the studio, under arti ficial light, however, were only a little less vivid. Face tints came out with a natural yellow .tinge. Instead of being completely pink. While this advance in the art of cine matography was going on Lee De Forest, wireless inventor, was conferring with leading motion picture interests with a view to beginning work on the produc tion of a talking film. His invention, which ho calls the phono-film and which he developed in a Berlin laboratory, has for its underlying principle the photo graphing of sound. Briefly, sounds are registered on the film by a small beam of light which varies with the fluctua tions of the human voice. The light re cords its variations on a ribbon one-six teenth of an inch in width which runs along simultaneously as a margin to the subject on the celluloid. For projection the process Is run back ward, the sound being reproduced by telephonic currents which are regulated by the intensity of the track of light. TO Bl Y OLD SI ON ROE HOME.
