CLUB NOTES Several brilliant papers have been read before the various women's clubs of Phoenix and have received the favorable criticism of the differ ent audiences. An article on "Origin of Opera," written by Mrs. K. M. Tafel, was considered of such exceptional merit that it was used as a loan paper and figured promi nently on the programs of organiza tions here and in the north. It was returned recently from the Flagstaff Woman's club and appears in a newspaper for the first time this morning. That it is worthy of rec ognition is unquestioned and The Republican is particularly pleased to reproduce the interesting article in response to the many requests of its readers. While Mrs. Tafel is inter ested in all departments of club work and is a member of the art and literature and civics education sec tions of the Woman's club, it is the music department that- receives her closest attention. She also belongs to the Musicians' club and has served on the executive boards of both ex clusive clubs. At present she Is re cording secretary of the Woman's club. "ORIGIN. OF THE OPERA" (By MRS. R. M. TAFEL) An article on origin of opera in detail may be rather a dry and dif ficult paper and entirely too much for time limits and a program af ternoon. I will endeavor to present in few words' and to the point what I have gleaned from reading llib- K "CRANE'S LINEN LAWN" Yes, I got it at the ART STORE You know Miller-Sterling Co. on Central Avenue. You can always find it there. You'll like it for there is nothing bet ter and they keep all the col ors, too. When this is gone, just go and see their line. It's FINE! bard's American History and En cyclopedia of Music on the origin and development of opera. The intimate knowledge which we have of the subject at the present time enables us to throw light on the phases which those things pre sented long ago. It is customary work, such as grand opera, or comic opera. So much for the origin of the word. The inventors of the Italian opera sought to bring music into the ser vice of the drama, and in pursuit of this plan strove hard for the dra matic expression of which they con ceived music capable. Gluck and Wagner opened the way to the ab solute freedom exercised by the composers of today and gave at least some measure of justification to the latest revolutionary Richard Strauss, in whose "Salome" music surrenders all its functions as an independent art and becomes a part of the scene. To go back, the individual actors for a writer to begin the history of i were aided by a chorus, whose duty it was to give expression, by song or dance, to the meaning of the lines being sung. No actor sang alone; to illustrate, if he were sing ing a soliloquy alone upon the stage he sang only one part of a many voiced composition, in the style of a Madrigal, the other voices sing- opera with "Eurydice." as a matter of course opera is as old as the drama, the primitive form of stage play, as shown in the religious func tions of our own American Indians, carries out the theory t.accims (Kat-che-nes) "Eurydice," the first opera, published in 1800, had only that title. " 'The Eurydice,' composed j jn(f behind the scenes. in music, in representative style. Many composers preferred to use de scriptive adjectives prefacing the name of the opera, as indicative of their dramatic or lyric style, thus we have "A Fable in Music," "A Japan ese Tragedy in Music," "Lyric Com edy." and so. Later composers In the Seventeenth century hit upon "Drama in Music," "Tragedy in Music," "Comedy in Music," and finally just "Opera in Music" (that is work or works). The meaning of opera is "a musical drama." consisting of airs, choruses. When Italian opera invaded Ger many, Austria, France and England, a confusion of tongues seemed to bo a dominant feature. Germany and England were confronted with an anomaly of language they felt that their people should understand the words of the play but they were so dependent on foreign singers that the recitatives and arias were badly mixed as Addison amusingly put it: The king or hero of the play gener ally spoke in "Latin, his slaves ans wered in English: the lover fre quently gained the heart of the princess in a language which she did r.ot understand, at length the audi ence, which means Germany etc., got tired of only understanding half the opera, and it was so ordered that the whole play was performed in an unknown tongue Italian. Addison thought that the grandchildren of his generation would wonder at the con duct on the part of their forefathers in listening to a play which they did not understand. But it has prevailed through the centuries and the Eng lish a,p.d American people of today are doing the same thing. There was a time in Italian opera, when there had to be six characters only three men and three women; there had to (Continued on Next Page) HUNTINGTON HALL Boarding and Day School for Girls.
