Failure of the boston Grand Opera
Company and Mme. Pavlowa to arrive
In Washington before 2 o'clock this
morntnir. thus orcventlnir last nkht'a
performance of ""Tho Love of Three
KlnKS," mayl prove a ble&slng In tlls
Kulse. Instead of witnessing only four
performances as originally scheduled,
Washington' grand opera lovers have
now the prospect of enjoying five.
It was stated at the Belasco Theater
today that the program for tonight and
tomorrow will he carried out. that "The
Lovo of Three JClngs" will be given on
Monday night, and that the Idea of con
tinuing the grand oper4 performances
until Tuesday night was being strongly
entertained. It Is not Improbable that
if the demand is sufficiently strong and
the scenery can be brought here In time
the company will give "La Boheme" as
one of the contemplated added attrac
tions. Extension Favored.
Manager Taylor, of the Belasco, said
the first regular attraction booked for
next week after the Monday night per
formance of "The Love of Three Kings'
would be "The Cinderella Man." which
does not begin until Thursday night.
This would leave the fhcater at the dis
posal of the grand opera performers.
Although no decision had been reached
this afternoon, the indications are that
every effort will be made by the pro
moters for an extension of the perfor
mances. Both Manager Taylor and
Mrs. Wilson-Greene, the local repre
sentative of the grand opera company,
as -well as a number of subscribers to
the guarantee fund, are said to be
strongly in favor f the extension.
News that tho grand opera company
and Mme. Pavlowa were snowbound
between Washington and Boston was
not received in Washington until 6
o'clock yesterday afternoon, too late for
announcement In the afternoon papers.
Manager Taylor and Mrs. Greene tel
ephoned to practically all subscribers
to the guarantee fund and the latter
communicated with mos.t of the persons
who had bought tickets. Four or live
hundred whojiad not been reached "ap
peared at the Belasco .shortly after 8
o'clock to learn of the postponement
until Monday night. Those few who
found it impossible to arrange for at
tending on Monday were allowed to
redeem their tlckcU.
8even carloads of scenery arrived
early yesterday and the sconery for
last night's performance was set or
i ready for quick shifting long before if
o'clock. When news of the postpone
ment was received, the stage hands un
packed the scenery for "Madame But
terfly." which will be given tonight,
tilth Mme. Tamakl Miurl, the Japanese
prima donna. In the title role. This will
be followed by Mme. Povlowa and her
assistants In an Egyptian ballet.
